According to reports, Nyako passed away in the early hours of Thursday.
Barr. Abdullahi Nyako was more than an aide; he was family to me in every sense of the word. He served me with loyalty and diligence. He will be sorely missed.
It’s unclear what led to the death of the long-time associate of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election.
Confirming the death of Nyako, Paul Ibe, Atiku’s spokesman, quoted him as saying, “Abdullahi was more than an aide, he was a family to me in every sense of the word. He served me with loyalty and diligence. He will be sorely missed.
“On behalf of my family, I wish to convey my deepest condolences to the Nyako family and pray that the Almighty Allah will comfort and strengthen them. May Allah forgive his sins and grant him Aljannah Firdaus. Ameen.”
PDP belongs to the people, not Nyako – Atiku
FORMER Vice President Atiku Abubakar said yesterday that governor Murtala Nyako cannot sit in his office and dictate to the people on how a party like the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will be run.
