Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has expressed his condolence to the Lemu family over the death of a renowned Islamic scholar, jurist and educationist, Sheikh Ahmed Lemu.
Gbajabiamila also commiserated with a former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, over the death of Alhaji Musa Saleh Kwankwaso, his father.
This was contained in a statement issued on Friday by the Special Adviser to the Speaker on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, titled ‘Gbajabiamila Condoles Sheikh Lemu, Kwankwaso Families.’
The Speaker said Sheikh Lemu, who passed away recently, led an exemplary life.
Gbajabiamila said the life and time of Lemu, a onetime Grand Khadi of Niger State, were full of service to humanity, noting that the late Sheikh was an embodiment of peace and unity.
He also said the late Sheikh Lemu would be remembered for his contributions to Islam as a religion and in the education sector not only in Niger State but also in the entire country.
Similarly, Gbajabiamila said the Kwankwaso’s father, who was the Makaman Karaye, lived a fulfilled life, saying it is painful for one to lose his father.
The Speaker sent his condolences to the Government and people of Niger State, especially members of the Lemu family, as well as Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso over the two separate losses.
