Senate wants Shagari immortalised

Late ex-president, Alhaji Shehu Shagari

The Senate yesterday urged the Federal Government to immortalise late former president Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari by naming a national monument after him.

Senators also resolved to send a high-powered delegation to condole with the family of the late former president.

While observing a one minute of silence in honour of the late former president, senators paid glowing tributes to Shagari, whom they described as a core patriot and democrat. The resolutions were reached after the adoption of a motion sponsored by Senators Ibrahim Abdullahi Danbaba, Aliyu Wamakko and seven others.
