The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed sadness over the death of a former governor of old Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa.
Naija News reports that the former National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) died early Wednesday and was buried in the evening according to Muslim rites.
Reacting in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, the PDP said it is deeply grieved by the death of the elder statesman.
The main opposition party described Balarabe Musa as an outstanding democrat.
The party said the former Kaduna governor’s death is a huge national loss given his steadfastness, patriotic contributions and zeal in fighting for the unity, stability and development of our nation.
According to the PDP, Balarabe Musa was a forthright leader, an embodiment of ideals, who spent a better part of his life championing the entrenchment of justice, equity, fairness and rule of law in every sector.
“Our party commiserates with the Balarabe Musa family, the government and people of Kaduna state, as well as his friends and associates even as we pray that the Almighty God grants eternal repose to his soul and fortitude to the family and the nation at large, to bear this irreparable loss.” The statement said
