Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina state has condoled Kano State Government and the family of Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule, Danmasanin Kano over his death, describing it as a great loss suffered by the nation.
“It is with sadness and great sense of loss that I received the news of the death of elder statesman and fine gentleman, Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule, Danmasanin Kano.
“His death ranks as one of the saddest moments for the nation in recent times, as it robs Nigeria of one of its voices of reason whose level of patriotism was supreme. His deathcame at a time of great tribulations for the nation, when his interventions would have come very handy.
“Alhaji Maitama Sule’s commitment for the Nigerian cause was unquestionable. He has lived and died a life of service to the fatherland, and Nigeria and Nigerians would surely miss this great patriot.
“On behalf of the government and people of Katsina state, I extend our condolences to the immediate family of Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule and the government and people of Kano state over this great loss. May God forgive him all his sins, and grant his immediate family the fortitude to bear the loss”.
