Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, the Etsu Nupe and Chairman, Niger Council of Traditional Rulers, has expressed deep shock over the death of his Wazirin Fada, Alhaji Chado Musa
The Etsu Nupe described late Alhaji Musa, who died on Monday night as pious, loyal, hardworking, dedicated and cmmitted in the discharge of his responsibilities.
Abubakar said this shortly after the burial rites of Alhaji Musa, who was also the Waziri Fada at Etsu Usman Zaki palace on Tuesday in Bida.
He said the late Alhaji Musa was also honest, a great pillar at the palace and a reliable servant whose services would be greatly missed by the entire Nupe kingdom.
The royal father said that the deceased was instrumental to ensuring the successful conduct of the daily activities around the emirate.
“The deceased showed love to the people in our domain, irrespective of tribe or religious inclination.
“God has His reason for calling him home at this point in time, as the people of the emirate have enjoyed his advice, which will be greatly missed,” he said.
The Etsu Nupe, however, prayed God to grant the deceased eternal rest in Aljannatul fildausi and give the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
