The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Barau I. Jibrin, has commiserated with the government and the entire people of Yobe State over the death of the first elected governor of the state, Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim. 

Bukar Abba Ibrahim, who died on Sunday at the age of 75, was first elected governor of Yobe State in 1992. In 1999, he was again elected and he governed the state for eight years – from 1999 to 2007. For 12 years (2007 to 2019), he represented the Yobe East Senatorial District at the Senate.

Senator Barau, in a statement by his media aide, Ismail Mudashir, described the deceased as an astute politician and leader who served the state and the country meritoriously.

While praying to Almighty Allah to forgive his shortcomings and admit him to Jannatul Firdausi, Senator Barau urged his family and all those he left behind to take solace in the fact that he lived a righteous life dedicated to the service of Allah and humanity.

“Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim dedicated his life to the service of Allah, humanity, the state and the country as a whole. As a governor, he worked for the transformation of Yobe State and as a senator, he contributed immensely to lawmaking and other parliamentary activities throughout his 12 years in the Upper Chamber.

” May Allah SWT grant him Jannatul Firdausi. Our prayers are with the state government, his immediate family and all other persons he left behind. May Allah give them the strength to bear his passage,” he said.
