Late Kanti Bello

President Muhammadu Buhari has advised the family, friends and associate of Senator Mahmud Kanti-Bello, who died today after a brief illness, to honour his memory by continually upholding the values of honesty and accountability, which served as his reference point throughout his public service.
In a condolence message today, President Buhari described the deceased as a very outspoken and courageous patriot, who worked hard to ensure that all levels of government in the country were responsible and accountable.
The President commended the effective representation of Katsina Central Constituency/Daura Senatorial zone from 2003-2011 by the late Senator, adding that also his commitment to the unity of Nigeria will be long remembered and honoured.
“It will continue to serve as inspiration to many others.”
Buhari sent his heartfelt condolences to the Kanti-Bello family as well as the government and people of Katsina State even as he also commiserates with the Senate over the loss of the Senator who he said was once the Senate Chief Whip.
The President prayed to Allah to comfort all who mourn him and grant his soul eternal rest. [myad]
