Former Vice President and chieftain of All Progressives Congress Atiku Abubakar says unblemished public service record was one of the greatest and most indelible virtues for which the Dan Masanin Kano, Alhaji Maitama Sule would be remembered by Nigerians and the world.
In a tribute to the late Dan Masanin Kano who died in Cairo, the former Vice President in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja, noted that the deceased was one of Nigeria’s greatest and most remarkable politicians whose vast experience, knowledge and wisdom are invaluable and immeasurable.
According to the Waziri Adamawa, the late Maitama Sule was an epitome of selfless service to the people, adding that politicians of his generation were dedicated to service with integrity, qualities which he said, have been significantly eroded since the end of the First Republic.
Atiku Abubakar also noted that Maitama Sule was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge who had dedicated his entire life to the promotion of peace, unity, peaceful coexistence, tolerance and good governance.
Atiku Abubakar stressed that the deceased only wealth was his integrity because the accumulation of wealth was never his preoccupation throughout his public service record.
The former Vice President extended his condolences to the government, the family and the people of Kano State of the death of this illustrious and remarkable politician.
