Kwara State governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed yesterday described as painful and very shocking the death of the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in last Saturday governorship election in Kogi State, Alhaji Abubakar Audu.
Governor Ahmed in a condolence message commiserated with the government and people of Kogi State on the death of Alhaji Audu who was the first governor of Kogi State.
According to him, “It is particularly painful that Nigerians, especially the people of Kogi State, have lost the services of Alhaji Abubakar Audu who was on the verge of being re-elected as the governor of Kogi State, going by the results of the election declared so far by INEC.
“It is, however, noteworthy that the political history of Kogi State will be incomplete without a chapter on the contributions of late Abubakar Audu to the democratic and infrastructural development of Kogi State.”
Dr Ahmed noted that late Audu had played his part in the political annals of Nigeria before leaving the world on a high note as a man popularly loved by his people, as the results of the last gubernatorial election in Kogi so far had shown.
The governor prayed Allah to grant Audu eternal rest and the family as well as the people of Kogi State the fortitude to bear the loss.
