Governor Ganduje Condoles With Family, NULGE, And NLC Over Comrade Ibrahim Khaleel’s Death


Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state commiserates with the families, Nigeria Union of Local Governments Employees (NULGE), and Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) over the death of the NULGE President Comrade Ibrahim Khaleel, who was also the National Treasurer of the NLC, who passed away yesterday Wednesday, in Abuja, the Federal Capital.

“The government and people of Kano state received the sudden death of our own, a freedom fighter and a dogged activist, the National President of the Nigeria Union of Local Governments Employees (NULGE), Ibrahim Khaleel, who passed away to Eternal Grace, with the deepest sense of shock,” the governor said.

Death, according to the governor, took him away when the country needed him the most, emphasizing that, “It is a great loss to unionism and labor industry across the nation and other parts of Africa.”

While praying for Allah’s Forgiveness to the reposed soul of the NULGE late President, governor Ganduje prayed for the family, friends, and their Comrades the fortitude to bear the loss. “May Allah forgives all his mistakes and rewards his good deeds abundantly,” he prayed.

“Not only local governments employees, but all other trade unions in the country could also attest to the fact that Ibrahim Khaleel was an exemplary leader whose leadership style stemmed from his deep care and patriotic concern for his people,” he appreciated.

Since his activism in Kano state, Khaleel, according to the governor “…was a beacon of hope and flagship to many leading voices in the fight against injustice and urge for genuine worker welfarist state. The great mission he took to the national arena when he became the National President.”

Ganduje lamented that a big vacuum was left in the struggle for a welfare state for the Nigerian workers at all levels of governance. “What is needed now is for others to follow the footsteps of the late National President of NULGE,” he concludes.
