Speaker Dogara Mourns Justice Nasir


The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has described the death of Justice Mamman Nasir, the Galadima of Katsina and former President of the Court of Appeals, as a monumental loss.

Dogara in a statement through his Special Adviser, Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, noted that Justice Nasir was a legal icon and courageous jurist, who served the country meritoriously and contributed immensely to the development of the law and independence of the judiciary.

“He played major roles in stabilizing Nigeria at various times during periods of difficulty and uncertainty.

“His contribution to the overall development of Nigeria would be remembered as one of his legacies,” Dogara emphasized.

The Speaker noted that his death came at a time his wisdom, wealth of experience and fatherly guidance are most needed, not only in his home state, Katsina but in Nigeria at large.

While describing him as a notable jurist and patriotic elder statesman, Dogara stated, “Nigeria has indeed lost a great and courageous man who exhibited good character and served his country with dignity and integrity.

“His death will surely leave a huge vacuum that will be difficult to fill.”
