President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has expressed sadness over the death of former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Mamman Nasir, and described the late judge as an eminent jurist who contributed immensely to national development.
Saraki in statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, stated that the legacies of the late jurist which are replete in his copious rulings and judgements on the many cases he presided over during his lifetime would remain a guiding light and source of inspiration to both members of the bench and bar for a long time to come.
Saraki said: “Justice Mamman Nasir was a fearless and hardworking jurist who approached every assignment with firmness and patriotism. He contributed immensely to the development of the judiciary in particular and the nation in general. We shall all miss him.
“He looked very strong when I presented his award to him at the inaugural annual awards ceremony of the Body of Benchers. Nobody could see him that day and predict that he was in his last days. But Allah knows best”, Saraki stated.
The President of the Senate commiserated with the immediate family of the deceased, the nation’s judiciary, the government and people of Katsina State over the sad and irreparable loss.
He prayed Allah to grant the departed soul a place among the righteous ones in Aljannah firdaus and his family and loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss.
