Kogi State House of Assembly member representing Lokoja 11 State Constituency, Hon. Idris Ndako has described the death of Maigari of Lokoja, Alhaji Dr Mohammodu Kabir Maikarfe 11, as a huge loss.
He said the late Maigari was a father, leader, elder statesman and legendary monarch.
In an emotional condolence statement, Idris Ndako said the news of the death of the Maig came to him as a shock.
The Lawmaker noted that the history of Northern Nigeria and indeed our great nation cannot be written without a mention of the immeasurable contributions of the late Maigari.
“For decades he deployed his peace building skills in managing differences in his strategic and complex domain. Through the force of his personality and deft human management, he raised the Lokoja Chiefdom to one of the most influential area in Nigeria.
“We have indeed lost an icon of culture, tradition and socio-economic development. He stood for equity, fairness, justice and peaceful co-existence. His big shoe will be very difficult to fill.
“We celebrate his impactful life. He will live forever in our hearts. May the Almighty Allah forgive the shortcomings of our Royal Father and grant him Aljanah Firdaus. May He give us the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss,” he said.
