"We are here as a family to pay you a condolence visit. The late commissioner for science and technology was like a brother to us. He's someone we all know was very close to you. We know him and to some extent, we know the role he played, even during your campaign.
"So for us, it's really a loss to all of us, not just to you and the people of Sokoto State, and we have come to share with you, this moment of grief and to say that whether in joy we're together, and in grief we'll be together, and to pray that whatever is left behind God will bless it, and God will grant you and the entire people of Sokoto the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss," the speaker said.
