Late Emir Of Lere: Loss Of A Noble Patriarch Of Our Land, Tom Garba Mourns


    By KATO P. LADAN, Kaduna

    Tom Garba, one of the illustrious sons of Lere Local Government Area of Saminaka, Kaduna State has mourned the death of  the Emir of Lere, Rtd Brigadier General Abubakar Garba Muhammed.
    Tom Garba in a statement made available to newsmen,  described Muhammad as a father, mentor, and a rallying point of unity to the people of Kaduna State, a bridge-builder and a huge link for the peaceful coexistence of the entire people of Lere LGA whose sudden demise is a  great loss to Nigeria as a country.
    While commiserating with his immediate family, the people of Lere who after his successful military career haven retired in great honors to have served the country in many capacities, because of his untapped wisdom and wealth of knowledge, he was called upon to serve his people as  Emir of Lere, an office he served well before his death.
    In his lamentable words, Tom Garba said a gap has been created, a link to many channels of goodness has been cut off from our people, a shoe of a great man is empty, who can wear it?
    Tom Garba said that the elder statesman has lived well, gave the best to humanity, and Allah’s blessings shall be his portion in the life hereafter.
    “Sir, I met you in few gatherings and I discovered instances abound in you to be one of the nicest men that I vowed to emulate.
    “You spoke that love to humanity is love for God, you preached peace at all times because it is God’s gift to mankind, a pivotal means that humanity can enjoy life to the fullest.
    “You were a man of double honours, an enigma of success yet humble because  the love of mankind is in you.
    “I can’t stop shedding tears as I discovered that the man who through all his life he lived loving the people of Lere by rallying round, supporting and giving golden advice to anyone around him is no more.
    “Sir, yours is a great life and reward by Allah in Paradise. My prayers are that we live on the legacies you have carved out for us, we follow in the good steps you have imprinted in our motherland, in the sands of times you will still be remembered for good because posterity will judge well.
    “Have a better rest now because you have worked well, Aljannatur Firdausi, and bountiful rewards are all my prayers for you.” Tom prayed.
