“Therefore, I am here in various capacities. This loss is ours. His father was our father. We had few occasions when we met our late father who was always full of wisdom.
“I want to take this opportunity to commiserate with Distinguished Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume over this loss and his family and of course, the people and Government of Borno State at large.
