Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has mourned the death of a former Kaduna State Governor, Balarabe Musa.
In a series of tweets by his spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu said Nigeria has lost a fine progressive.
According to the former Lagos governor, the late Musa was a principled progressive politician who will be sorely missed.
He pointed out that the former national chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) was very uncompromising and stood for his convictions in 1981 when he was impeached.
"The first civilian governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa was a statesman and principled progressive politician. He was very uncompromising," Tinubu said.
"He stood unwaveringly by his convictions even at the height of his impeachment by the NPN controlled State Assembly in 1981.
"He would be sorely missed by the entire country particularly the Talakawas for his consistent struggle and commitment to social and economic change. I commiserate with his immediate and extended family.
"I mourn with the people and government of Kaduna State. I mourn with the country for we have all lost a fine progressive. May Almighty Allah grant him Aljanna Firdaus. Amin."
