The former speaker of the 8th Assembly of Nigeria, Ghali Umar Na’Abba, has passed away.

Na’Abba, who passed away in Abuja early hours of today is expected to be buried according to Islamic rites later today.

He was born on September 27, 1958. He joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 1998 during its formative period.

He emerged the party’s candidate in April 1999 National Assembly election in Kano Municipal Federal Constituency of Kano state and won the election to represent the Federal constituency in the House of Representatives.

With the victory and support of other House members-elect from Kano and North West geo-political zone, he pursued the role as Speaker of the House.

Although he amassed substantial support from his colleagues and party leaders, he bowed to counsel and conceded to Ibrahim Salisu Buhari, who later emerged as first Speaker of Fourth Republic House of Representatives.

He was thus appointed the House Committee Chairman on Appropriations.
