In a condolence message issued by his spokesman, Mallam Abdulazeez Arowona, the Emir described the deceased as a devout Muslim and thorough administrator who served the nation diligently in different capacities.

Alhaji Sulu-Gambari who recalled his aged-long relationship with the deceased spanning over six decades since 1961, expressed shock over the unfortunate incidence, saying:” _Inna lillahi Waina Ilaihi Rojihhun”._

“May Almighty Allah forgive his shortcomings, accept his good deeds and admit him into al-janatul firdaos. ”
