The immediate past Governor of Nasarawa State and Senator representing Nasarawa South Senatorial District, Umaru Tanko Almakura has clocked 67years on his sojourn on this earth.
Speaker of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ibrahim Balarabe Abdullahi took time to underscore the Senator’s contributions to the development of the state and the country at large.
A press statement signed and issue by Chief Press Secretary, Jibrin Gwamna quotes the Speaker Balarabe Abdullahi, ascribed the Senator’s well-known slogan of ‘Architect of Modern Nasarawa State’ as enough evidence of his major contributions to the state.
The Nasarawa State Number Three Citizen said the name Almakura is still very fresh in our memories and that his concrete contributions will forever remain indelible in the golden thumb of Nasarawa state history.
“There can never be enough time for whoever, no matter how closely in tune in the affairs of Distinguished Senator Tanko Almakura, to explain this unique character of a man, who is an enigma and whose achievements in the development of our dear state are yet unsurpassable”
“There is no doubt that the passion he has brought to bear in the service of the people of Nasarawa State is not only mind-buggling but almost an obsession.”
“To be honest with you, Almakura is a role model per excellence.
His multiferious achievements between 2011 to 2015 are legendary and were really what spurred me into contest for the state House of Assembly election in 2015”
“I was really impressed by his commitment, so I wanted to be part of his success story,” the speaker said.
Balarabe Abdullahi asserted that the current ruling APC in the country owed a lot to Almakura, as the APC, no doubt, is an offshoot that resulted in the sacrifices made by Senator Almakura and Nasarawa State.
Ibrahim Balarabe Abdullahi emphasized that Almakura was the main ace that gave space, surface and substance to the present APC to nurture itself from CPC to its present status in the country.
According to the speaker, Tanko Almakura emerged on the nation’s political fermament at a time when the country was on the threshold of rediscovering itself.
He maintained that history will judge Almakura rightly for that courageous part of a wonderful and patriotic roles he played in arresting the nation from imminent drift, in reenacting a fresh agitation for our collective political re engineering and the efforts he marshalled in stabilising our nascent democratic experience at then.
Speaker Balarabe Abdullahi felicitates with Senator Almakura at 67, wishing him more of good health, wisdom, protection as well as more rewarding years in service to humanity.
