Also speaking at the occasion, Kano State Gov. Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, described the deceased as a simple, friendly and as someone who carried everyone along, irrespective of differences.
He said, “The kind of life the late Danmasani lived is worthy of emulation by all, especially the young ones, because he made great impact in ensuring that they had the country in their minds and not for their personal interest.”
The Acting President, who was received by Gov. Ganduje had earlier paid similar visit to the Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammad Sanusi the II.
