Senator representing Kaduna North Senatorial District, Sen. Suleiman Abdu Kwari has described the death of the Emir of Zazzau, Dr Shehu Idris as one of the saddest developments recorded by the country, describing Dr Shehu Idris as a highly cultured leader who was urbane and cosmopolitan in the handling of issues.
He noted that his commitment to peace exemplified by his patriotic disposition to national issues was a factor that distinguished him.
Sen. Kwari commiserated with the royal family, and the Nasir El-rufai Government of Kaduna, and the entre people of Zazzau emirate, stating that the late emir will be dearly missed.
The lawmaker who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes, lamented that the Emir’s death has come at a very crucial moment in Nigeria’s national experience, a time when the nation is working with dignified lovers of peace to institute harmony among various groups.
He therefore lamented that the death of the emir is particularly sad as his contribution to peace in northern Nigeria and the country will be dearly missed.
The Senator prayed for the repose of his soul, and called on Nigerians to imbibe in themselves, the virtues and ideologies of peace and harmony for which the late emir was known.
Senator Kwari called on the Federal Government to consider immortalizing the late emir by naming a national edifice in his honour.
