By AUSTIN OWOICHO, Abuja
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the party deeply saddened by the death of the Party’s immediate-past National Vice Chairman (North Central), Alhaji Zakari Abdullahi Idde who died in a fatal car crash.
A statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu said that at the meeting of the Party’s National Working Committee (NWC) on Monday, a minute silence was observed in honour of late Alhaji Zakari Abdullahi Idde who was until his death, the Board Chairman of the Lower Niger River Basin Development Authority. The NWC has sent a delegation to the family of the former National Vice Chairman to deliver the Party’s condolences.
The late Alhaji Zakari Abdullahi Idde was a gentleman, grassroot politician and strong proponent of the APC’s progressive ideals who worked passionately for the unity and growth of our great Party. He will be sorely missed.
The Party expresses deep condolences to his immediate family, the government and people of Nasarawa State. We pray Almighty Allah grants the late Alhaji Zakari Idde al-Jannatul Firdausi.
