The Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, has expressed shock over the death of the National Chairman of the Labour Party, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, which occurred today in Abuja.
This is contained in a statement signed by the National Secretary of CUPP, Peter Ameh.
According to the statement, late Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, died after his early morning prayers.
“I’ve lost a friend of several decades. He was not sick, he even joined the early morning prayers this morning. This is a great loss not only to opposition political parties but to the Nigerian democracy as a whole” Ameh stressed.
“His progressive ideas will be surely missed, We fought side by side, so I can testify of your undying love and faith in our country” he added
I know first-hand of your fiery bravery and valour. You never shied away from confronting evil and injustice. You took the battle to villains and pretenders. You loved all but hated injustice.
It states that the late Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, served God and loved humanity with all your heart.
“He knew the Lord and appreciated His creatures whether they are Muslims, Christians or of other Faith’s.
The statement describs him as one who is knowledgeable, exposed, experienced, widely travelled and tolerant.
It further explains that he was a leading light who always seek to promote others.
The statement therefore prays for his soul to rest in peace, and for God to grant his family the fortitude to bear the great loss and his memories a blessing to our nation.
