Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state has commisserated with the Ubandoma family over the demise of Alhaji Umaru Babagoro Mu’azu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and community leader who passed on yesterday at the age of 73 after a protracted illness.

In a condolence message, Governor Inuwa Yahaya described the deceased as a close political associate, a dogged progressive and a community leader whose elderly advice and guidance will be greatly missed.

He said Alhaji Babagoro Mu’azu was a seasoned public servant who spent greater part of his life serving the nation before venturing into politics.

“He was a grassroot man, a community leader with passion to serve humanity”.

Governor Yahaya consoled the bereaved family to take solace in the fact that the late Babagoro lived a life of service to Allah and humanity.

He prayed Almighty Allah to forgive his shortcomings and grant him Aljannat Firdaus.

Late Babagoro worked in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) between 1978-2006 where he
