“The late monarch who was on the throne for almost half a century left enviable footprints in peace-building, and as a renowned custodian of his people’s custom and culture,” the former president said.
He prayed Allah to grant him Jannatul Firdaus.
In a related development, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mourned the death of the highly revered Emir of Zazzau, describing his death as an irreparable national loss.
The party also described late Idris as an “extraordinary and exceptionally loved monarch, who served his people with utmost dedication and spent his life in the pursuit of their happiness as well as the wellbeing and peaceful coexistence of all Nigerians.”
PDP said: “The late Emir of Zazzau was a selfless leader and outstanding nationalist, who made immeasurable sacrifices in his relentless roles towards the development and stability of our dear nation, and demonstrated that the essence of statesmanship is in employing its values to the advantage of others rather than the self.
“Our party calls on the Federal Government to take steps to further immortalise the late Emir, including naming a national monument after him.”
The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, commiserated with Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, and the state government; the family of the departed Emir as well as the good people of the Zazzau Emirate.
PDP prayed Allah to console them and grant the faithful departed eternal rest.
