Opinions: Commiserations With The Abdulrazaq Family

Commiserations with the Abdulrazaq Family

Inalilahi Wa Ina Ilaehi Rajiun. I commiserate with Dr. Alimi AbdulRazaq and all his siblings, the entire AbdulRazaq family, the Emir of Ilorin, the Ilorin Emirate and the people of Kwara State over the passing away of the Mutawalli of Ilorin, Alhaji AbdulGaniyu Folorunsho AbdulRazaq.

The late AGF, as he was fondly called by people who knew him, was one of the statesmen produced by Kwara State. He will be sorely missed. I believe he did his best in the service of our people in Kwara State and Nigeria as a lawyer, politician, diplomat and President of the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

I pray that Almighty Allah forgives his sins and grants him a place in Aljannah Firdaus.
