Below are excerpts from the message:
“I am deeply saddened by the passage to eternal glory, of the former Governor of Niger State, Engr. Abdulkadir Kure, who died yesterday at
the age of 60.
“Kure distinguished himself in public service before joining politics
where his candour and selflessness set him apart.
“He was indeed a committed and highly principled democrat and an
exemplary devotee who was true to his belief, both in worship and
“He will be missed by the Government and good people of Niger State,
his political associates and the rest of the country.
May the Almighty grant him al Jannah Firdaus.”
