Former Communications Minister, Gen. Tanko is dead, Shittu mourns

The former Minister of Communications to President Ibrahim Babangida military regime, retired Gen. Tanko Ayuba, has passed to the great beyond at a Lagos hospital on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, at the age of 71, reports ITRealms.

Reacting to Ayuba’s demise, the current Honourable Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, while commiserating with the family, described late General as a gentleman officer and politician.

Also, the Special Assistant on Media to Communications Minister, Mr. Victor Oluwadamilare, said, the Minister condoled the family of the former minister who served during the Babangida military regime, urging the family to find solace in the quality of service rendered by the former minister to his fatherland in various formations of the Nigerian Army, as a Military Governor of Kaduna State and a Senator representing Kebbi State.

He eulogized late Gen Ayuba, saying the former military top brass gave an enviable direction to the Communication sector when he served as minister between 1985 and 1987.
Shittu also sympathized with the people of Kebbi State, where he hailed from, the people of Kaduna State where he served as a military governor and Nigerians in general, adding that the contributions of the late Gen. Ayuba to communications cannot be over-emphasized.

“It is indeed the traceable footprints left behind by Gen. Ayuba in the Communications ministry that subsequent ministers have been building upon and this will spur someone like me to work harder to  leave more indelible marks on the sand of time in the ministry”, he said.

Barr. Shittu said the death of Gen. Ayuba was a great and irreparable loss to the nation at such a crucial time when his immeasurable wealth of experience could count as well as monumental loss to the military which he served diligently.

He prayed that Almighty Allah grant the soul of the departed former minister Al-janah Firdaws and give his family the fortitude to bear the loss.
