Senate bids late member, Awaisu Kuta, farewell

The senators expressed deep grief at the loss of their colleague.

The Senate on Wednesday held a valedictory session in memory of late Senator Awaisu Kuta.

Mr. Kuta, 65, represented Niger East constituency. He died in the early hours of June 12 in Lagos while the senate was in recess.

At the session, most of the male lawmakers dressed in black caftans and black suits while the female lawmakers wore black caftans and hijab.

The Senator representing Niger South Central District, Zainab Kure, was in tears before the meeting commenced.

Mr. Kuta’s family members, the governor of Niger state and some indigenes of the state, were also present at the valedictory session.

The Senators expressed grief at the loss of their colleague and friend.

The Senate President, David Mark, during his speech at the session said “I have a difficult task to express the loss of our colleague.”

“I was in Brazil when I was called that Senator Kuta was no more. My pain sitting here is so much, at the appropriate time, He will call each and every one of us,” he said.

Ike Ekweremadu, the deputy president of the senate, described the late senator as a family man who loved his country and his people.

Victor Ndoma-Egba representing Cross River Central said his death was a very sad way to end the 4th senate session.

Abdul Ningi representing Bauchi State Central said “Kuta has touched the hearts of people here. We have lost a rare gem”.

The Senate urged the federal government to rename the headquarters of Hydro-Power Producing Areas Development Commission in Minna, Niger State after Mr. Kuta.

Awaisu Kuta was the third member to die in the 7th senate.
