Governor Bello shocked at Kure's death

10 January 2017, 17:43

Abuja - Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, has expressed shock at the death of former premier, Abdulkadir Kure.

He said the news of the demise came with disbelief because he spoke to him a few days ago.

“He was doing reasonably well. In fact, I was hoping to go and see him soon but it appears that after my phone conversation with him, the situation went out of hand,” said the governor.

“The passing away of Alhaji Abdullahi Kure, is a tragedy to the state and the Nation at large,” said Bello.

“His demise at this critical and crucial moment of our country has created a big vacuum. We have lost a rare gem and repository of wisdom.”

Kure was the 12th governor of the state and third civilian premier and first in the current political dispensation.

He was governor on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party from 1999-2007.

Kure died at the weekend at a Germany hospital after a brief illness aged 61.

He is survived by his wife, Senator Zainab Kure, and six children.
