“As the former governor goes home, the President affirms that he left a bold footprint on Nigeria’s democracy, and his role in promoting good governance and development will always be remembered and appreciated by posterity,” the statement read.

 

Musa, who died at the age of 85 on Wednesday, held office from October 1979 was the first governor to be impeached in Nigeria’s history on 23 June, 1981.
