Ishaku in a condolence message by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Bala Dan Abu, stressed that death had robbed the nation of a rare gem whose counsel is most crucial.

According to the statement, “the Green Revolution programme of the late Shagari’s administration succeeded in sensitizing Nigerians on the need to pay more attention to farming” which according to him has reduced the country’s dependence on food imports.
