The member representing Kontagora/Wushishi/Mariga/Mashegu Federal Constituency at the Federal House Representatives, Rt. Hon. Abdullahi Idris Garba (Jagaban Kontagora) has condoled with the family of renowned veterinarian and scientist, Prof. U. S. Abdullahi, over the passing of the Academic scholar and administrator.

In a condolence message via his social media handle, Rt. Hon. Abdullahi, on Tuesday, acknowledged that late Prof. U. S. Abdullahi work would continue to stand as a testimony of his diligence and brilliance.

He, therefore, joined the academia in Nigeria in mourning the researcher and animal surgeon.

Here is his post as below;

“My sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the families of Ajiya Kontagora and Walin Kontagora, friends, and the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria over the demise of Prof. U. S Abdullahi.

Prof. U. S. Abdullahi is a renowned and a ground-breakingl veterinarian, and a brilliant educationist of Ahmedu Bello University (A.B.U) Zaria.

Prof. U. S. Abdullahi was a sound large animal surgeon, and a larger-than-life figure in the animal medical science careers of his many students during his years at A.B.U Zaria, advising, cajoling and reminding his student and people of the impossibly high standards to which we were being held. He expected greatness; he demanded independence, creativity and critical thinking. And, above all, he wanted to see or hear something that was new and exciting. The challenge we all faced was how to say or do something interesting enough to get Professor Shehu’s attention.

He is among the pioneering vets in the country, his VCN is 557 in the Veterinary world and a graduate of 1977 at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria. We are proud to call him one of our finest from Kontagora. He is a father, brother, uncle and friend to all because of his simplicity towards the people of his community. No doubt, his demise is a colossal loss one to Kontagora Emirate and its good people, Niger state and Nigeria at large, whose extent is difficult to put into words.

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace #”

While speaking with Gulmawuya’s correspondent via phone Rt. Hon. Abdullahi noted that the late scholar’s drive and love for knowledge earned him many recognitions and awards.

Rt. Hon. Abdullahi prayed for repose of the soul of the departed, and God’s comfort for his family.
