Late Emir of Zazzau, Dr. Shehu Idris
Chairman North-Central Governors’ Forum, and Governor of Niger state Abubakar Sani Bello, says the death of Emir of Zazzau, Dr Shehu Idris, has created a vacuum that can only be filled by Almighty Allah.
A statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS) Mary Noel-Berge, and made available to SummitNews, said Gov. Sani Bello stated this during the three-day firdau prayer for the repose of the soul of the late Emir of Zazzau.
The governor noted that the deceased was one of the oldest Emirs in the Northern Nigeria who was of great value to the region.
He prayed Allah to continue to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest, while praying for the peace and progress of Zazzau Emirate, Kaduna State, Northern Nigeria and the Country in general.
The North-Central Governors’ Forum Chairman was at the three-day firdau prayer of the late Emir alongside his counterparts from Ekiti, Jigawa and Plateau states as well as highly placed dignitaries including the former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasonjo.
