The senate president alongside those who accompanied prayed with Senator Kwankwaso at his Kano home at Miller Road, Bompai and also at the graveside of his father.
Speaking to newsmen, Lawan said: “This loss is for all of us. Religiously and traditionally, there is no division or dichotomy among us. This is what we should do to condole with anybody who is bereaved. Likewise, if something good happens, it’s also for us to rejoice and congratulate one another. This is the way we should treat each other. This is what is expected of us.
“We pray that God should have mercy on our father. God should forgive him. He lived a fulfilled and befitting life. He lived a life of service, helping others. He lived a life of sacrifice and brought unity to the community.
“We that he left behind, may we also leave a good legacy behind when our time is over. May God grant you the fortitude to bear the loss. May God console all of us for this great loss of our father.”

He was recently appointed Makaman Karaye by the Emir of Karaye, Ibrahim Abubakar ll, one of the emirs of four emirates created by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
