President Muhammadu Buhari, in a statement on Wednesday, has mourned the passing of a former governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa.

He described the late politician as “a voice for the voiceless” who “left a bold footprint on Nigeria’s democracy.”

The statement, titled, ‘President Buhari mourns former Governor of Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa’ was released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

It read in part:

“President Muhammadu Buhari joins government and people of Kaduna State in mourning a former civilian governor of the state, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, whose passing will be sorely missed by all Nigerians, who have diligently followed his antecedents as a voice for the voiceless.”

The President equally stated that he “believes Alhaji Musa reflected the passion and vigour that heralded Nigeria’s independence, which steadily translated into activism for return to democracy at the height of military interregnum and has remained steadfast in the call for good and inclusive governance.”

“As the former governor goes home, the President affirms that he left a bold footprint on Nigeria’s democracy, and his role in promoting good governance and development will always be remembered and appreciated by posterity,” he added.

“President Buhari prays that the almighty God will grant his soul eternal rest, and comfort his family, friends and associates.”
