The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed its sadness over the death of former military governor of old Kaduna State, Air Vice Marshall Mukhtar Muhammed (rtd).
The retired Military administrator died recently in London at the age of 73.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, the APC also condoled with the immediate family, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) and the government and people of Kaduna and Jigawa states over the death of the elder statesman, who was the Wazirin Dutse, Jigawa State and Chairman of the first private FM station in Kano State, Freedom Radio.
“The late AVM Muhammed who was the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) Board of Trustees, deputy chairman, was a patriot and leading progressive voice in the country who spoke passionately for the unity and development of the north and the entire country, in order to salvage it from numerous problems of insecurity and poverty.
“He was one of the country’s finest and principled military officer who distinguished himself in the various commands and assignments he held and undertook in the Nigerian Air-force.
“While the death of the AVM Muhammed is a sad and painful loss, we should take solace on the fact that he lived an impactful life. May the Almighty Allah (SWT) grant his eternal rest in Aljannah Firdaus,” the statement read.
