Ganduje condoles with Gaya emirate over emir’s death

Kano state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has described the death of Emir of Gaya, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdulkadir as great national loss.

Ganduje, in statement issued by the state’s Commissioner of Information, Malam MuhammadU Garba, said he received the news of the passing away of the monarch with immense sadness and deep feelings.

The governor observed that despite his ailing condition, the monarch’s uncommon leadership qualities earned him respect since his days as Sarkin Gaya and until his death as first-class Emir.

“The death of the emir of one of the oldest Emirates in northern Nigeria has created a vacuum difficult to be filled considering his contributions to promotion of peace, stability and progress in his domain and the country.

“The demise of the late monarch is a big blow to his immediate family, Gaya Emirate, Kano state government and the entire people of Kano state.

He prayed Allah in His infinite mercy to grant his soul Aljannah Firdausi and called on the entire people of the Emirate to bear the loss with the spirit of acquiescence to God’s will.

The governor also urged them to take solace in the fact that endurance was not the measure of a good life but the sense of fulfilment.

Late Alhaji Abdulkadir has been on the throne of Sarkin Gaya since 1990 and has held several traditional positions to include district head of Kunchi Minjibir, among others.
