President Muhammadu Buhari has joined the government and people of Kano State, family and the All Progressives Congress (APC) political family in mourning the death of former Labour Minister, Alhaji Musa Gwadabe.

In a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu, President Buhari, who described Gwadabe as a “colossal figure in Kano politics,” said his demise has deprived the nation of one of its most remarkable political leaders.

He said: “The late Musa Gwadabe was a complete gentleman. He was a smooth political operator and a very reliable ally with an unmatched record of support, leading to the emergence of the current APC administration and the incoming one.”

‘‘I will not forget his tireless efforts to keep the party afloat during difficult times. That he died a few weeks ahead of the inauguration of the Tinubu/Shettima administration that he laboured so hard to bring about is one of the ironies of life. May Allah repose his soul,” the President said.
