The Niger State Government has described late Sarkin Sudan, Kontagora, Niger State, Alhaji Saidu Namaska, as a promoter of peace and unity.

He died today, Thursday, 9th September, 2021 at the age of 84 in Abuja after a protracted illness.

In a condolence message on behalf of the state, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Ahmed Ibrahim Matane, expressed grief and sadness over the death of the Sarkin Sudan, Kontagora.

Matane stated that with the passing of Alhaji Saidu Namaska, Niger State, and Nigeria as a whole have lost one of its longest-reigning monarchs, whose contributions to the peaceful co-existence of his subjects and unity among Nigerians cannot be forgotten in years to come.

The SSG also described him as a bridge-builder who reached across ethnic, cultural, and religious divides to promote peace and unity not only in his domain but the State as a whole.

“The contributions of late Saidu Namaska to the development of Kontagora Emirate, the entire State and indeed Nigeria are unparalleled. His life on earth was very eventful and his achievements in all spheres of life left indelible marks on the people of his domain, Nigerlites and Nigerians.

“The Government and people of Niger State expressed their heartfelt condolences to the Chairman, Niger State Council of Traditional Rulers, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, the Etsu Nupe, family of late Alhaji Saidu Namaska and the people of Kontagora Emirate.

“We pray that the Almighty Allah (SWT) would forgive the shortcomings of the departed, remember his good works, grant his soul eternal rest as well as give his family and the people of the Emirate the much-needed strength and comfort to bear the loss,” he said.

The monarch, who until his death was the Vice-Chairman, Niger State Council of Traditional Rulers, spent 47 years on the throne.

Alh. Namaska was born in Kontagora on 31st, December 1937 and ascended to the stool in 1974 as the sixth Sarkin Sudan, Kontagora.

The late Sarkin Sudan of Kontagora is survived by wives, children and great-grandchildren.

The Secretary to the State Government then announced that the Janazah Prayer would take place today at the Palace of Sarkin Sudan, Kontagora by 4:00 pm.
