Kano State Government has condoled with the Emir of Zazzau, His Highness, Ahmad Nuhu Bamali, over the death of his brother.
A delegation of the government led by the Deputy Governor, Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, represented Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf to offer condolences and pay respect to the Emir.
A statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Deputy Governor, Ibrahim Garba Shuaibu, said the visit came in the wake of the recent loss of Emir Bamali’s younger brother, the late Alhaji Mansur Nuhu Bamali.
Mansur passed away in October while in transit to Morocco, during a layover at a private hospital in Lagos.
Gwarzo and his delegation extended their condolences during the visit to the Emir’s palace in Zaria, Kaduna State.
He conveyed his sympathies during the visit and eulogized the late Alhaji Mansur, acknowledging the loss to the Emirate and the entire nation.
Gwarzo also commended Alhaji Mansur’s humility, kindness and simplicity, despite his distinguished royal lineage and extensive educational background.
Responding, Emir Ahmad Nuhu Bamali expressed his gratitude to the delegation representing Governor Abba for the condolences.
The Emir reflected on his late brother’s life, emphasizing that even though he passed away at the age of 52, his lifetime achievements were equivalent to that of someone who had lived a 100 years.
“Indeed, every soul shall taste death. Late Mansur lived an exemplary life worth emulating, and we pray for his final resting place to be the highest peak of Al-Jannah,” the Emir prayed.
Daily Trust reports that the deceased had served as Nigeria’s Ambassador to Morocco and held the distinguished title of Magajin Garin Zazzau.
