By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has extolled the virtues of late Abdulkadir Kure, describing the late former Niger State Governor as a patriotic individual who loved his people dearly.
In a statement issued by his media office to commiserates with Niger State over Kure’s death, Tinubu wrote, “I commiserate with Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, the government and people of Niger State over the death of Senator Abdulkadir Abdullahi Kure.
“I also commiserate with former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, former head of state, General Abdulsalami Abubakar and other leaders in Niger State.
“Governor Kure was a statesman, a patriot. We were governors at the same period (1999-2007). Even though we belonged to different political platforms, it was easily decipherable that Engineer Kure was dedicated to the course of the country, as he was committed to the course of Niger State and its people.
“Alhaji Kure was an ebullient politician. He was down-to-heart and humble. The country will miss him. The political class will miss him even more.
“My heart goes out to Senator Zainab Kure, the children and the entire Kure family. I pray that God Almighty comfort them and give them the courage to bear the loss”.
