Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has urged both the Kano State Government and the Kano Emirate Council to immortalize the late Galadima of Kano, Alhaji Tijjani Hashim, who died in Abuja Monday.
He said this becomes necessary in order to avail the future generation of the deceased’s contribution to the development of Kano and Nigeria.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal described the deceased as a complete gentleman who used his wealth and influence for the benefit of the people.
He said the late Galadima made a name for himself as a humble prince and traditional title holder whose deep knowledge of the traditions of the people of Kano stood him in good stead among all Nigerians.
“He was both traditional and modern. He traversed the two worlds without conflict, in the process earning for himself and Kano Emirate, huge respect the world over,” the Speaker added.
While condoling with the government and people of Kano over the death, Tambuwal prayed to almighty God to give his immediate family the fortitude to bear the loss.
