Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has said the late Senator Zanna Ahmed of Borno State was one of the greatest grassroots politicians he had ever met in the course of his interactions with leaders.
The former vice president, who was reacting to the death in a statement issued by his media office in Abuja, said he was amazed by the level of zeal and sincerity with which Senator Zanna had represented his people at the National Assembly.
Atiku, who recalled his personal closeness to the deceased, said even Zanna’s worst enemies won’t deny the incredible passion with which he had served his people actively as a Senator.
The former vice president regretted that the Senator died at a critical point when the APC needed his valuable experience and advice in the course of implementing its change agenda to restore hopes to Nigerians.
According to Atiku, the late Zanna was a man purely motivated by the desire to serve the people rather than a man looking for power for the sake of personal glory and selfish advantages.
He prayed to God to forgive his gentle soul, and grant his family the fortitude to bear this great loss.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
