A former senator representing Niger North in the National Assembly, Nuhu Aliyu, is dead.

The Niger State Government confirmed his death in a press statement on Wednesday.

The statement by the Secretary to State Government, Ahmed Matane, noted Aliyu died on Wednesday in Kaduna State following a brief illness.

Due to Aliyu’s death, Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello suspended the weekly State Executive Council Meeting.

“The patriotic tendencies and excellent handling of legislative duties concerning the welfare of people and the nation demonstrated by late Senator Nuhu Aliyu are worthy of emulations.

“But we must take solace in the fact that from God we all come and to Him we shall all return. Nobody shall live longer than the time appointed by Almighty God,” the statement read in part.

Nuhu Aliyu, a Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party was the first chairman of the PDP in Niger state before being elected into the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 1999 and was re-elected to the same position in 2003 and 2007.
