First Impeached Governor in Nigeria, Musa Balarabe is Dead

The former Governor of old Kaduna State Balarabe Musa is dead.

Musa died on Wednesday at the age of 85.

This was confirmed to Channels Television by his son, Dr Ibrahim Balarabe.

He said the ex-governor died in the early hours of Wednesday after suffering from a protracted illness.

“He died today Wednesday, 11th of November at the age of 85. His burial will be around 4.00 pm today,” Balarabe told Channels Television.

He adds that Balarabe Musa will be buried according to Islamic rites.

Balarabe Musa according to his son will be remembered for being honest and straightforward.

His son also described him as an ‘encyclopedia of knowledge.’

Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa (21 August 1936 – 11 November 2020) was a left-wing Nigerian politician who was elected Governor of Kaduna State, Nigeria during the Nigerian Second Republic, holding office from October 1979 until he was impeached on 23 June 1981, which made him the first in the history of Nigeria.

Meanwhile, sympathizers have started trooping to the Rimi residence of the former Governor to pay their condolences to the family.

Former Kaduna-Central Senator, Shehu Sani also announced the death of Balarabe Musa in a Tweet he shared on his official handle.
