Late former Governor Balarabe was a patriot, says Obasanjo

Former President, Chief Olusegun has lamented the loss of former Governor of Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa who he described  as a patriot, whose death was received with deep shock by him.

Penpushing reports that, Obasanjo lamented the loss in statement  signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Wednesday, noting that Musa  had unwavering belief in a greater Nigeria, adding, “and, he accordingly gave the best of his remarkable talent and ability in pursuit of this goal,”

The late politician emerged the first civilian Governor of Kaduna State on the platform of the moribund National Party of Nigeria (NPN) in 1979 and re-affirmed himself one of Nigeria’s most articulate Governors at the time.

“Despite his latter impeachment as the Governor of Kaduna State in 1981, he contested an elective office for the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) where he ran as Presidential Candidate in the 2003 election which unfortunately he lost.

“The late Alhaji Balarabe Musa will be remembered for his invaluable contribution to Nigeria’s political evolution. He brought renewed activism, verve and resourcefulness to bear on the nation’s polity,” Obasanjo said
