The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the death of renowned Islamic scholar and retired justice, Ahmed Lemu.
The former Vice President who expressed sadness over Lemu’s death said the deceased would be sorely missed.
Atiku took to his Twitter account and wrote, “Innalillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Raji’un! Sheikh Justice Ahmed Lemu, OFR was a foremost jurist, Islamic teacher, humanist and philanthropist.”
“His death, at such a time, when the sectors he had served, including Nigeria, still needed his counsel, is a huge loss. He’ll be sorely missed.”
“May his family be comforted. On behalf of my family, I convey my deepest condolences to the Lemu family, the Judiciary, Islamic Ulama and the Government and People of Niger State over the loss.”
His son, Nurudeen, announced his death on behalf of his family.
