Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has led a delegation, including government functionaries and APC stalwarts to attend the funeral prayer (Janazah) of a die-hard supporter of the ruling party, Ahmad (Khalifa) Muhammad Sagir.
Khalifa died earlier today as a result of injuries he sustained when he fell-off from a moving vehicle conveying sound system enroute Bajoga, Funakaye Local Government Area for an event that the Governor was attending.
Governor Inuwa Yahaya, who had directed the ambulance on his convoy to disengage and immediately rush the victim to the state Specialists Hospital for emergency medical attention, lamented his demise, describing it as heart wrenching.
He described the young party faithful as a respectful, hard working and promising fellow who was known for his die-hard support for APC and Governor Yahaya’s project.
The Governor commiserated with the father of the deceased, Malam Muhammad Sagir and the entire family members as well as APC leadership, praying Almighty Allah to forgive his shortcomings and grant him Aljannat Firdaus.
The Governor had to cut short his speech at the occasion, and put on hold other engagements at Bajoga in honour of the deceased.
