Etsu Patigi’ s death: We’ve lost another rare gem— Prof. Oba 



Late Etsu Patigi, Alhaji Ibrahim Chatta Umar

The former  Chairman of Federal Character Commission and Talba of Ilorin, Professor Shuaib Oba Abdulraheem, has described the late Etsu Patigi, Alhaji Ibrahim Chatta Umar, as a visionary and selfless traditional ruler whose reign has brought significant development to humanity at large.

The varsity don in his condolence message issued in Ilorin on Wednesday expressed sadness over the death stressing that the late Etsu Patigi was one of the highly respected monarch with unique and exceptional leadership qualities.

Prof Oba Abdulraheem further noted that, ” His Royal Highness, Alhaji Chatta Umar was a complete gentleman whose commitment to nation-building process is unqualifiable across all divides. His permanent departure has, no doubt, created a big vacuum which only Allah may help to fill.

“He has played exemplary roles that commanded the respect of all and sundry beyond Nupe speaking tribes as well as both Muslims and non-Muslims to become a strong and dependable pillar for the masses.

“He was a devout Muslim, a promoter of cultural activities and advocate of equity, justice and fairness to all with loaded carriage of unique royal charisma. He was a detribalized traditional ruler, bridge builder and father for all. We have indeed lost another rare gem.”

Abdulraheem however commiserated with the people of Patigi community, Patigi Emirate Council and the Emir of Ilorin and Chairman Kwara State Traditional Council, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, over the irreparable loss.

“May almighty Allah grant his soul eternal bliss, admit him into paradise and grant his immediate and distant families the fortitude to bear the great loss”, he said.
