Pharmacists extol virtues of late Maitama Sule
The Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) has expressed its condolence over the death of the Former Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Maitama Sule, who died at the age of 87 on July 3 2017 in a hospital in Cairo, Egypt.
The group said his death was a colossal loss not only to his family, but to the nation at large.
This was contained in a statement signed by the President, PSN, Ahmed Ibrahim Yakasai, as he commiserated with the people of Kano state and Nigeria in general.
The statement reads: “PSN will always remember him as a great statesman and Nationalist personified as a man of peace who was highly committed to the unity of Nigeria. He was a man of faith blessed by Almighty Allah with a wonderful voice, outstanding eloquence and a good sense of humour.”
Ahmed noted that he was a man of unparallel dignity who served without being tainted with scandals as commonly found in leaders, adding that he would be sorely missed by the family members, friends, associate and teeming Nigerians.
“PSN therefore prays for repose of his gentle soul and may Almighty Allah Grant him Aljannah- Firdous,” he added.
Until his death, Maitama has held several positions in Nigeria, as the permanent representative to the United Nation and also the former Minister during the first and second republic of Nigeria.
