Senator Uba Sani representing the Kaduna Central District has described the late Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris a father, leader, elder statesman and legendary monarch.
In an emotional condolence statement, Uba Sani, said the news of the death of the Emir came to him as a shock.
The Senator noted that the history of Northern Nigeria and indeed our great nation cannot be written without a mention of the immeasurable contributions of the late Emir Idris.
The statement reads:”For decades he deployed his peace building skills in managing differences in his strategic and complex domain. Through the force of his personality and deft human management, he raised the Zazzau Emirate to one of the most influential Emirates in Nigeria.
“We have indeed lost an icon of culture, tradition and socio-economic development. He stood for equity, fairness, justice and peaceful co-existence. His big shoe will be very difficult to fill.
“We celebrate his impactful life. He will live forever in our hearts. May the Almighty Allah forgive the shortcomings of our Royal Father and grant him Aljanah Firdaus. May He give us the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss,” Uba Sani said.
