Kuta was a lover of his people, says Adeyemi
The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Smart Adeyemi yesterday said Senator Dahiru Awaisu Kuta, who represented Niger East in the upper chamber, was a lover of his people.
Adeyemi, who paid the tribute this in a statement in Abuja, said he knew the late Senator as a primary school pupil as a good man.
The statement said: “It is really painful and shocking to lose a friend and elder brother like Senator Kuta.
“I knew Senator Kuta while I was growing up as a primary school pupil in Niger State. He never changed from being himself and a lover of his people. I remember my last discussions with him two weeks ago. I mentioned the issue of his health and he said God was in control. He told me he had taken medications.
“He was always concerned about the downtrodden and his constituents. He was always closed to me like an elder brother. To Kuta, Nigeria is one. He was never a tribalist or religious fanatic. He was a senator of the Federal Republic. To him, every Nigerian must have three square meals.”
