Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State has mourned the death of former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Nasiru Nono, who died on Thursday in a ghastly motor accident along Abuja-Keffi Road.
In a statement by Ismaila Uba-Misilli, Director-General, Press Affairs, Gombe Government House, Yahaya expressed sadness over Nono’s death.
Yahaya described the demise of Nono as a monumental loss to his family, Gombe and Nigeria as a whole.
He said the late former lawmaker discharged his legislative duties with “tact, dexterity and statesmanship while presiding over the state legislature and earned the respect and loyalty of his colleagues.”
He, however, prayed to Almighty Allah to grant the deceased Aljannat Firdaus.
