Renowned former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ghali Umar Na’Abba, has passed away. The sad news emerged in the early hours of Wednesday.
At present, there is limited information available regarding the circumstances of his demise, and we are diligently working to gather more details.
Ghali Umar Na’Abba served as the second Speaker of the House of Representatives during the current 4th Republic. His contributions and legacy in the realm of Nigerian politics have left an indelible mark. We extend our condolences to his family, friends, and all those affected by this loss.
He was elected Member of the House of Representatives in 1999 from Kano State. He became the Speaker a few months after the inauguration of the House following the resignation of the then Speaker, Salisu Buhari, from the same Kano State, over certificate forgery scandal.
