Ahmad Lawan, the President of Nigeria’s Senate, has commiserated with the family of a Second Republic Senator, Paul Wampana who died on Sunday.
Lawan also condoled with the government and people of Adamawa State, friends and political associates of the late Senator over the tragic loss.
The Senate President said Senator Wampana had contributed immensely to the political development of Nigeria both at the state and at the national levels.
Lawan specifically noted Senator Wampana’s active involvement in politics as a Speaker of the defunct Gongola State House of Assembly, a Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District and later as a Minister of State for Public Health during the Second Republic.
The Senate President said Nigeria will, no doubt, miss the wealth of experience which the Senator acquired over the time.
Lawan prayed for the repose of Senator Wampana’s soul and for the Almighty God to grant those that he left behind the fortitude to bear the loss.
