The National Leader of the APC, Sen. Bola Tinubu, has commiserated with Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala-Buni and the people of Yobe over the death of the Chief Judge of  the State, Justice Musa Nabaruma.

In a condolence message to the family members of the deceased, Tinubu also expressed his condolences to the family of the late chief judge whom he described as a courageous and diligent judicial officer.

The Chief Judge,  until his death, was Yobe’s number one judicial official for 10 years, having been sworn in since 2011 in that capacity.

He died in an Abuja hospital on May 19, after a protracted renal disease.

Tinub said: “I received with great shock and grief, the news of the death of an illustrious public servant and a jurist of high intellectual repute, Hon. Justice Musa Nabaruma, chief judge of Yobe state.

“The late chief Judge was not just the longest serving in that capacity in the history of Yobe state, he was respected by all for his sense of justice, fairness, and equity,” he said

The APC leader said that as a judicial officer, the late chief judge discharged himself creditably.

“On behalf of myself and my wife, Oluremi, I wish to express our sincere sympathy and deepest condolences to Your Excellency, the Nigerian Judiciary, his immediate and extended family, as well as the entire people of Yobe state, on this irreparable loss.

“Our hearts are with you all at this moment.

“We pray that Almighty Allah grant his soul eternal rest, comfort his family and give us all, the fortitude to bear this loss,” Tinubu said.
