Remembering Ghali Umar Na’abba: Former House of Reps Speaker Passes Away at 65

In a poignant moment for the Nigerian political landscape, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives in the 4th Republic, Ghali Umar Na’abba, has passed away. Quingist Empire reporters gathered that he breathed his last in the early hours of Wednesday at the age of 65, concluding a brave battle against an illness.

Hailing from Kano State, Na’abba entered the political arena when he was elected as a member of the House of Representatives in 1999. His political journey took an unexpected turn as he assumed the role of Speaker mere months after the House’s inauguration. This transition followed the resignation of the then-Speaker, Salisu Buhari, also from Kano State, amidst a certificate forgery scandal.

Na’abba’s legacy is interwoven with a period of crucial political transitions and legislative reforms during the 4th Republic. His contributions to shaping the nation’s political landscape are remembered as instrumental and impactful.

In a recent development that caught the attention of political observers, Na’abba made the decision to part ways with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). Opting for a new political direction, he aligned himself with the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP). This move underscored his commitment to navigating the ever-shifting tides of Nigerian politics.

As the nation mourns the loss of Ghali Umar Na’abba, it is a moment to reflect on his storied career and the indelible mark he left on the political landscape. His tenure as Speaker stands as a chapter of significant legislative activity and transformative reforms.

In the wake of this solemn news, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of the late Ghali Umar Na’abba. His contributions to Nigerian politics will remain etched in history. As we bid farewell to this seasoned statesman, let us honor his memory by striving for a better, more united Nigeria.

While the passing of Ghali Na’abba leaves a void, his legacy will serve as a beacon for those navigating the complex currents of Nigerian politics. May he rest in peace.
