Danzago mourns Na’Abba, extols leadership qualities

Spread the love

By Aminu Garko

Alhaji Haruna Danzago, an elder statesman, on Wednesday urged political leaders to emulate the leadership qualities of Alhaji Ghali Na’Abba, former House of Representatives Speaker, who died on Wednesday.

Danzago told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Wednesday that Na’Abba demonstrated political maturity while handling the affairs of the House of Representatives.

Na’Abba, aged 65, died in Abuja Wednesday morning.

He represented Kano Municipal Federal Constituency and won election to the National Assembly on the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 1999.

He became the Speaker of the House of Representatives after Alhaji Salisu Buhari left the Assembly over certificate and age issues.

Danzago said that Na’Abba was not only a patriot, but also a special breed of politician who stood in defence of unity and greatness of the country.

“His personal traits and attributes of truthfulness, transparency, probity and integrity earned him greater respect among his contemporaries and Nigerians.

“He was a detribalised Nigerian; he related with every part of Nigeria with uncommon fervour and love thereby fostering peaceful coexistence and harmony.

“He was a defender of our democracy. His sterling leadership qualities would remain indelible in the political lexicon of the country.

“Na’Abba fought against differences along political, ethnic and religious lines during his time as the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

“He will be remembered for fighting the third term agenda of former President OlusegunObasanjo to standstill,” he said. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
