Otunba Gbenga Daniel, former Governor of Ogun State has described the death of Alhaji Balarabe Musa, former Governor of old Kaduna State as a painful event.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, signed by the Otunba Daniel himself, he further described the death of the former Kaduna state Governor as a great loss to Nigeria.
“The death of Balarabe Musa is a painful passage and a great loss to Nigeria. It is like another good part of Nigeria silently chipped away.
“It is so sad! Nigeria has lost another Democrat, a consistent fighter and outspoken voice for the talakawas, one of the few that reaches beyond the frontiers of unnatural political division in our country.
“Balarabe Musa would be greatly missed as a man who had unrepentant conviction of his political beliefs and ideology; and he was so consistent and passionate about them. He lived and died as a vocal advocate of the masses, especially the poor,” he stated.
Gbenga Daniel also expressed his condolences to the Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir el-Rufai; the people of Kaduna State and members of the Balarabe Musa’s family for the great loss.
He prayed that Almighty Allah would console them, grant them the fortitude to bear the loss; and for the soul of Balarabe Musa to find peace with his Creator, Allah.
