President Bola Tinubu has extended condolences to the Asholyio people in Southern Kaduna, on the passing of His Highness, Dr. Tagwai Sambo, the Chief of Moroa.

The late traditional ruler was on the throne for 58 years and is regarded as one of the longest-reigning traditional rulers in northern Nigeria.

He played a pivotal role in the establishment of Kaduna State University, serving as its pioneer Chancellor.

President Tinubu, in a statement by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, said the late traditional rule led a life of selfless service, dedicated to education, peacebuilding, and community development.

The president prayed for the repose of the deceased’s soul and comfort for the family and those whose lives the royal father touched.

Also, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Abbas Tajudeen, has described the late traditional leader as a peace-loving man.

In a condolence message signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Abdullahi Krishi, on Wednesday, the Speaker noted that the late Sambo was not just a traditional ruler but an elder statesman and a great mobiliser of the people for good causes.

He commiserated with the Asholyio people and the people of Southern Kaduna over the loss of the traditional ruler.
