Minority Whip of the House of Representatives and leader of the Southern Kaduna PDP caucus at the House, Hon. Gideon Lucas Gwani condoles with the family, Zazzau Emirate Council, the people of Zaria and the entire Kaduna State over the demise of their Emir, His Royal Highness, Alh (Dr.) Shehu Idris who died after a brief illness at the 44 Military Hospital, Kaduna, yesterday, at the age of 84.
Gwani said, he is identifying with the people of Zazzau Emirate at this period of grief and he pray to God to give them the fortitude to bear the painful lost.
“The death of the Emir is not only a lost to the people of Zazzau but, a great lost to the state at large because of the strategic role he played as the Chairman of the Kaduna State Council of traditional rulers. My prayers for him is for Allah to grant him Aljanna Firdaus,” he added.
The late Emir ascended the throne in 1975 as the 18th Emir of Zazzau. Before his demise, he was the Chairman of the Kaduna State Council of traditional rulers.
