By Shuaibu Sadiq

Kaduna –  Gov Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai on Saturday described late Alhaji Gidado Idris as distinguished elder statesman.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Idris, 82 and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), died in Abuja on Friday.

In a message of condolence to the family of the former SGF, the governor said that Idris served Nigeria well.

Idris, who hailed from Zaria in Kaduna state, was appointed SGF in 1993 and he retired in 1999 after a civil service career that started before Nigeria’s independence.

“Alhaji Idris was a dedicated public servant who provided decades of distinguished service to this country. He was a father to us, widely admired for his humility and discipline.

“I personally benefitted from his humility, wisdom and foresight, when I served as a presidential advisor in the Programme Implementation and Monitoring Committee from 1998 to 1999.

“May Almighty Allah grant his soul Aljannah Firdausi, and his family the fortitude to bear this loss.”

El-Rufai’s condolence message was signed by Samuel Aruwan, the governor’s Senior Special Assistant Media and Publicity.(NAN)
