The President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has described the late Senator Zanna Ahmed from Borno State as a remarkable human rights activist who had frequently spoken in defence of oppressed people.
In a message of condolence issued in Abuja by his media team, Buhari said he was marvelled by Zanna’s tenacity in defence of his opinions over the issues affecting the interest of the people of Borno State.
According to Buhari, the late Zanna was an “extraordinarily courageous politician who constantly stood by his convictions.”
The President-elect noted that Zanna was not a typically selfish Nigerian politician who put his interest before his people’s.
Buhari said the deceased will always be remembered for these rare virtues among Nigerian politicians, adding that other leaders should emulate his selflessness. The President-elect also extended his condolences to the family of the late Senator, the government and the people of Borno State.
