Speaker of the House of Representatives Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila expressed his condolences to the Lem family over the death of the famous Islamic scholar and jurist, Sheikh Ahmed Lem.
The speaker said that Sheikh Lem, who passed away recently, led an exemplary life.
He said that the life and age of Sheikh Lem, the former Great Khadi of Niger State, were full of service to humanity, noting that the late Sheikh was the embodiment of peace and unity.
Gbajabiamila said the late Sheikh Lemu will be remembered for his contribution to Islam as a religion and in the education sector not only in the state of Niger but throughout the country.
Similarly, Gbajabiamila sympathized with former Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwas over the death of his father Alhaji Musa Saleh Kwankwaso.
He said Alhaji Kwankwaso, who was Makaman Karaye, lived a fulfilled life, adding that it was painful to lose his father.
The speaker expressed his condolences to the government and people of the state of Niger, especially to members of the Lemu family, as well as Rabbi Musi Kwankwas for the two separate losses.
He prayed to Almighty Allah to grant the souls of Sheikh Lemu and Musa Kwankwaso eternal rest in Jannatul Firdaus.
