President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family, government and people of Bauchi State over the death of the former Deputy Governor of the State, Alhaji Garba Gadi,
The President, in a condolence message issued in Abuja on Monday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, also condoled with members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
He stated that with the death of Gadi, Nigeria had been robbed of one of its “finest men of principle and integrity who set an enviable standard worthy of emulation.’’
He noted that, “despite the negative perception of politicians, there are still honourable men such as Alhaji Garba Gadi.
President Buhari maintained that loyalty was one of Gadi’s greatest quality, adding that the deceased was impeached because he rejected opportunism for the sake of principle, a quality, he said, was “uncommon among our politicians.
The President said he held Gadi in the highest esteem for standing by his principles, in spite of the risks in doing so.
He, therefore, prayed to Allah to forgive the sins of the late Deputy Governor.
It would be recalled that Late Gadi contested the 2007 governorship election with Alhaji Isa Yuguda (former governor of Bauchi state) on the platform of All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP), to defeat candidates of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
