Maitama Sule's death, a great loss--Okorocha

Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha said he received the death of elder statesman, Maitama Sule with rude shock and heightened disbelief.
The governor said, with the demise of Alhaji Sule, the nation and indeed, Africa have lost one of the finest and vocal nationalists who had lived his life preaching peace and unity of purpose for the nation.
He said, as a federal minister and Nigerian Ambassador to the United Nation respectively and even as the then leader of the Northern Elders Forum, the Dan Masanin Kano displayed exemplary leadership and commitment to service for the good of all.
The governor regretted that Alhaji Maitama Sule has died at a period when the nation needs detribalized leaders like him to be around and added that the nation won’t forget the enviable contributions of Alhaji Sule to the development and growth of the nation in a hurry.

According to the governor, in many years to come history and posterity will be fair to Alhaji Sule because he acted well his part both as a leader and as an elder statesman and since honour lies in one acting well his part.
He extended his condolences to the governor, government and good people of Kano state over the death of this great Nigerian.  And prayed that the Almighty God would grant those he left behind to mourn him all they need to bear with this great loss.
