Senate President Ahmad Lawan has condoled with Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State and other family members over the death of their father, Alhaji AbdulGaniyu Folorunsho Abdul-Razaq.
Lawan commiserated with the government and people of Kwara State and in particular the Ilorin Emirate over the demise of the patriarch.
The Senate President said the late elder statesman was a trail blazer, being the first in virtually all areas of his endeavour among his people.
Lawan said the late Mutawali of Ilorin was the first lawyer in Northern Nigeria and left indelible footprints on legal practices and public service in Nigeria. He stressed that Alhaji AbdulRazaq lived a fulfilled life worthy of emulation by all.
The Senate President President prayed Allah to accept his soul in the Aljannat Firdaus and grant those he left behind the fortitude to bear his loss.
With total submission to the will of the Almighty Allah, I announce the passing away of my father and a stateman, Alhaji AbdulGaniyu Folorunsho Abdul-Razaq SAN (OFR), at the age of 93. May Allah SWT grant him Aljannatul Firdaus.
