The former governor of Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babagida Aliyu has described the late emir as an exemplary leader and a bridge builder.
The former Chief Press Secretary to Dr. Aliyu, Mr. Israel A. Ebije, in a statement said, “It is indeed with deep sense of loss I received the news of the passing of Emir of Borgu Kingdom, Alhaji Haliru Mohammed Dantoro, Nkitoro III.
“He was a great leader and his network of friends extends beyond the shores of Nigeria. He was indeed unique in his leadership and deep in his faith in Allah.
“ May his exemplary leadership in promoting peace, unity and progress in Nigeria be remembered as his legacy towards making Nigeria a better place to live.
“ I therefore have no doubt that Allah SWT will grant him Aljannah Firdaus. I pray his family, the people of Borgu, Niger state and indeed the entire country the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
