The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is deeply saddened by the death of its immediate past National Vice Chairman (North West), Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir.
APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, said this in a statement in Abuja on Monday while sympathising with Abdulkadir’s immediate family as well as the government and people of Sokoto State.
According to Nabena, the APC has lost a grassroots politician, truly progressive and distinguished personality who served the party and country meritoriously and at the highest level.
“In grief, we urge all to remember and be comforted by the positive impact and indelible strides the late Alh. Inuwa Abdulkadir esq left during his time on earth.
“Until his death, Alh. Inuwa Abdulkadir esq was also the Chairman, Governing Board of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and Chairman, Governing Council of Sokoto State University.
“He was once Attorney General of Sokoto State and Minister of Youth and Sports Development.
“He held the traditional title of Magatakarda Babba (Chief Scribe) of the Sokoto Sultanate.
“We express our deep condolences to his immediate family, the Sokoto Sultanate, the government and people of Sokoto State.
“May Almighty Allah be merciful and grant him Aljanat Firdaus,” the party’s spokesman said.
