Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has mourned the death of Balarabe Musa, former Kaduna State governor.
Tinubu described the late Musa as a principled progressive politician who will be sorely missed.
The APC National Chairman said the deceased was very uncompromising who stood for his convictions in 1981 when he was impeached.
He disclosed this in a series of tweets which was confirmed to MediaNG by his spokesman, Tunde Rahman.
According to Tinubu: “The first civilian governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa was a statesman and principled progressive politician. He was very uncompromising.
“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.”
