The Minister urged the former governor to take solace in the short but impactful life his son lived, as he was a role model to many young people.

“Mohammed Idris lived a life well spent, although short, and will be remembered for his service to humanity, his people, and society.

“We are grateful to Almighty Allah for the life well spent of the deceased, where he made a visible impact on the lives of people.

“His death is not just a loss to his family, but to the entire Kogi East, the State, and to the many who had the opportunity of crossing paths and interacting with him including myself,” he said.
