On behalf of the entire All Progressives Congress APC family in Zamfara state, the Chairman, Hon Tukur Umar Danfulani received with deep shock the passing away of a highly respected traditional ruler and Emir of Kotorkoshi, His Royal Highness Alhaji Ahmad Umar Mai-Kwatarkwashi who died yesterday, Thursday in his palace after an illness.
No doubt, as the oldest Emir in the north as of time of his death having served 61 years on the throne, Alhaji Ahmad Umar who died at the age of 96 was an astute leader, administrator and Islamic Scholar who served his people, his religion of Islam and all those he came across without segregation till his last breath.
He will be fondly remembered for all his unassuming goodness.
The State APC Chairman prayed for the repose of this great leader in Jannatu Firdaus.
The Chairman equally extends his condolences to the government and people of Zamfara especially the people of Kotorkoshi Emirate and the deceased entire immediate and extended family members praying Allah to give us all the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
