“Bukar Was Extremely Patriotic With Great Ideas,” – Senate
Senators yesterday took turns to extol the exemplary qualities of the late Senator Mustapha Bukar, who died on April 4 in Abuja.
Senators, who spoke at a valedictory session held in honour of the Katsina North lawmaker, described him as a perfect gentleman and a man of great ideas.
The Senate decorated the late Bukar’s seat in the chamber with a wreath placed on top of the national flag.
Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan, who opened the floodgate of tributes, hailed the late lawmaker for living a life worthy of emulation.
Senate President Bukola Saraki said there was a doubt that Bukar was a perfect gentleman.
Saraki noted that Bukar, in his simplicity, never carried himself as the senator representing President Muhammadu Buhari in the upper chamber.
“Bukar was indeed cerebral in his legislative performance. We have lost a perfect gentleman, we have lost great ideas. We have lost a man who always put the country first in all he did. We will greatly miss him,” Saraki lamented.
Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, in his tribute, said Bukar came to the Senate with a lot of experience, which the upper chamber benefitted from.
Ekweremadu said Bukar would be remembered for so many things, including his humility and forthrightness and openness.
Minority Leader Godswill Akpabio said Bukar was extremely patriotic and prayed God to receive his soul in paradise.
Senator Abu Ibrahim, in his tribute, said Bukar has highly respected in Katsina State local governments.
Ibrahim, who represents Katsina South, said Bukar worked assiduously for the country’s unity and stability.
Deputy Leader Bala Ibn Na’Allah said the late Bukar’s simplicity was never in doubt.
Na’ Allah described Bukar’s death as painful, which had greatly diminished him.
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe noted that the death of Bukar affected every one of them because the deceased was part of them.
