Obaseki mourns Bendel ex-gov Abdullahi
Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has mourned the death of former Military Administrator of old Bendel State, Vice Admiral Husaini Abdullahi (rtd.), who died yesterday in Abuja at 80.
In a statement, Obaseki described Abdullahi who served as governor of the defunct Bendel State from March 1976 to July 1978, as a fine naval officer and elder statesman, who contributed to the development of present-day Edo State and Nigeria in general.
“I am deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Abdullahi, who died on Wednesday in Abuja. He was a gallant soldier and a businessman, who made huge impact in business after his retirement,” the statement added.
Obaseki extended his condolences to his family, the Nigerian Navy, the Nasarawa State Government and the people of Doma, his local government area.
