Adamawa State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has described as shocking the gruesome murder of the former Speaker, the Adamawa State Assembly and Special Adviser on Political Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
In a press release Sunday, signed by the Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Humwashi Wonosikou, Fintiri described Ahmed Gulak’s murder as painful and a reflection of the wickedness of the wicked.
The Governor, while comforting the Nation, the All Progressives Congress and his immediate family, described the late Gulak as a witty, determined and practical politician whose rise in life was as a result of sheer hard work.
“It is unfortunate that death has taken from us, Rt.Hon Ahmed Gulak in such a gruesome manner.
“Gulak was a lively Politician who loved and worked with everyone and always held the interest of the country at heart,” the Governor lamented.
Recalling his interactions with the late Gulak, Governor Fintiri said “He was a brother and a mentor, a human rights advocate as a lawyer. Madagali community has lost a true son.
“Our Country has lost an astute fighter for human rights. We all remember how passionate he fought for the plight of those displaced by insurgency and the downtrodden”.
Ahmadu Fintiri described late Ahmed Gulak as a “Towering symbol of family values and the unity of the Marghi People as well as the entire State”.
The Rt.Hon Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri wished the family of the departed politician God’s grace and comfort as they come to terms with his demise.
“Death has robbed Adamawa of a prominent leader whose contribution to the integration and progress of the state shall be sorely missed.
“Certainly we mourn a great Man who cherished and worked for the peaceful Co-existence of Adamawa People,” Fintiri remarked.
While condoling the family for this great loss, Governor Fintiri prayed Allah SWT to grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and for Allah to grant the deceased Aljanna Firdaus and forgive his imperfections.
“The Government and People of Adamawa state stand in solidarity with the family, Marghi Community and all those who mourn him around the Country,” the Governor said.
