APC Mourns Borno Deputy Gov Zannah Umar Mustapha  

The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday expressed deep shock and sadness at the sudden death of the Borno State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Zannah Umar Mustapha.
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, National Publicity Secretary of the party, described Zannah’s death as a huge loss to his family, his party, his state and indeed, Nigeria.

Lai Mohammed said in a statement in Lagos: ”The suddenness of Alhaji’s Zannah’s passing has deepened the pain caused by his death.

”We pray that God will comfort his family and give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
The APC also commiserated with the people and government of Borno State over the deputy governor’s death, and prayed that God would grant repose to his soul.

NAN reports that the Borno government announced the passing away of Mustapha in Yola on Saturday.
Alhaji Usman Jidda Shuwa, Secretary to the State Government, said that Mustapha died in his sleep Saturday morning in Yola, Adamawa State, where he was to represent Borno government at the convocation ceremony of Modibbo Adama University of Science and Technology, Yola.
He was also scheduled to follow up on his earlier visit to Yola, in connection with the welfare of Borno State citizens internally displaced as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency.
His remains would be brought to Maiduguri for a funeral ceremony at Government House, Maiduguri by 4:00 pm today.
