Senator (Dr)Jonah David Jang has received with sadness the news of the demise of the great man and astute politician Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa, who passed on today at the age of 84.
This is indeed a painful loss not just to him as a person, the people of Kaduna State but the nation at large. Especially that this is coming at a time when his wealth of experience and the core values for which he stood have become more apt.
His life and times are indeed a pointer to the fact that with hard work, dedication and commitment one can make it to the peak of whatever path he chooses. He stood on the left flank and provided the needed spice to our democracy over the years. We cannot but say his brand of politics not only made him popular with the masses but made him stand out and carved a niche for himself.
He was a champion for the emancipation of the people, his voice stood out in the fight for a just and egalitarian society in which the dignity, liberty and rights of everyone is protected. A progressive minded politician who spoke the truth at all times and was rallying point for progressive politicians not only in northern Nigeria but the nation as a whole, on the platform of the CNPP.
The words he had spoken at different times will forever remain with us as the wisdom conveyed in them will be for all time and generations coming will hear about his exploits in the political development of Nigeria.
Our prayer is that the Almighty will grant his soul eternal repose and the family he left behind the strength to bear this great loss.
Senator Jang joins millions of Nigerians to celebrate the life of the great democrat, Alhaji Balarabe Musa.
