Galadiman Kano lived a life of community service – Atiku
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that the Kano Emirate Council has lost a prized asset with the demise of the Galadiman Kano, Dr Tijjani Hasheem who passed away on Monday.
The former Vice President said in a condolence message by his media office in Abuja on Monday that Hasheem's influence had become so profound that he had earned an oracular father figure in the emirate before his passage.
The Turaki Adamawa paid tribute to Hasheem for having lived a fulfilled life spent on community service and in peace-building in the Kano Emirate.
“The people of Kano have lost a prized asset, who spent most of his life and times pursuing peace and communal harmony among his people. As the Galadiman Kano, he was a strong confidant and adviser to the Emir of Kano and was the strong backbone of the late Emir Ado Bayero's reign and contributed immensely to the love and respect that characterised that era,” Atiku said.
He expressed his condolences to the Kano State government, the Emir and people of Kano Emirate Council and the family of Dr. Tijjani Hasheem.
Atiku prayed God to receive the soul of Tijjani Hasheem in al-janna firdaus, fill the vacuum his death has caused in the Emirate and give the family the fortitude to bear the loss of their patriarch.
