“He was a vibrant and exceptional public officer. He was there at the inception of this Eight Senate. He conducted the elections of presiding officers. We will surely miss his vast experience, his vibrancy and commitment to legislative duties.”

“My candid advice to the bereaved family is to strengthen their faith in God. We should also know that death is an inevitable end for all humans. I pray God to give you the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss,” Saraki said.
