Remains Of Senator Bukar Laid To Rest In Daura

He represented Katsina North until his death.

"As a first-time lawmaker, Senator Bukar stood out for the quality of his contributions on the floor, his pragmatism and his work to strengthen the institution of the legislature".

Until his death, Senator Bukar was the Senator representing Katsina State. We shall sorely miss his vibrancy and progressive mindset. The late Bukar was forthright and gentle in all his dealings.

Mr Bukar was recently in the news when he sponsored the training of 400 unemployed youths in his Senatorial District on yoghourt making and poultry production for self-reliance and economic sustainability.

The president prays that Allah will bless and forgive the soul of the deceased and grant him Aljanah firdaus.

Until his death, he was Chairman, Senate Committee on Capital market.

In a statement by his Senior Special Adviser on Media, Abdu Labaran, he described the late lawmaker as "a worthy son and representative of Katsina State, who had given a good account of himself in the Senate". He will be sorely missed.

Buhari commiserated with the government and people of Katsina State and the National Assembly on the passing away of Bukar.

Wakili died at the age of 58 and his death was confirmed by Saraki in a series of tweets to mourn his deceased colleague.
