Maitama Sule: A Patriot, Social Crusader, Exits the Stage- Ekweremadu

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has expressed deep grief over the passing on of Nigeria’s former Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) and Minister of National Guidance, Alhaji Maitama Sule.

Ekweremadu, who paid glowing tribute to the late politician, described the death as a heavy blow, not only to the Government and good people of Kano State, but also the entire nation.

He said: “This is the exit of a patriot, true statesman, role model, social crusader, diplomat of an uncommon pedigree, and an orator, who served the nation and humanity in many capacities.

“Although he was popularly known as Dan Masanin Kano, some of us preferred to call him Dan Masanin Nigeria, for he had a rare national appeal and loomed larger than life itself even in his humility. A man of unimpeachable integrity and agent of national rebirth, Dan Masanin was, true to his title, a man of the people, mouthpiece of the poor, master of words, peacemaker, and diplomat per excellence”.

Ekweremadu, however, regretted that Alhaji Sule did not live to witness the Nigeria of his dream, which he fervently preached, prayed, and worked for.

“As a people, therefore, we owe it to his memory to bring to fruition his dream of a truly united Nigeria where everyone is his brother’s keeper, a nation that is the pride of Africa, a bastion of democracy, citadel of peace, and an economic giant”.

The Senator prayed God to grant the soul of the deceased a peaceful repose and also comfort the late diplomat’s family and entire nation over the irreparable loss.
