Speaker shocked over Hon. Dogonyaro’s death

The Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, Ph.D had expressed shock and sadness over the death of the member representing Babura/Garki Federal Constituency of Jigawa State, Hon. Isa Dogonyaro.

Hon. Dogonyaro died on Friday, May 10 in Abuja at the age of 46 after a brief illness.

Describing Hon. Dogonyaro as someone who gave a good account of himself in terms of providing good representation to his people, Speaker Abbas said his constituents, the people of Jigawa State and indeed the House have lost one of their finest.

“I woke up this morning to the sad news of the passing away of a brother, friend and patriotic Nigerian, Hon. Isa Dogonyaro. I am pained by his death because he was a committed member of the 10th House, who has demonstrated zeal, determination, and dedication to nation-building.

“He was a perfect gentleman and a sound lawmaker. His departure will leave a vacuum in the House. We will sorely miss him,” the Speaker said.

The Speaker commiserated with his family, constituents, colleagues, and the people of Jigawa State, while praying to Allah to grant him Jannatul Firdaus.

Speaker Abbas also prayed to Allah to grant the remaining members of the House the grace to be alive and healthy in the service to the country.

Until his death, Hon. Dogonyaro, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was the Deputy Chairman of the House Committee on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Control.
