Rt Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi, the member representing Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam Federal Constituency was today at the residence of Late Comrade Mankwat Gizo to condole his widowed wife and relations over the sad death of the astute unionist.
The federal lawmaker who was in company of his wife, Mrs Jemimah Yusuf Gagdi, prayed God to grant everlasting rest to the deceased and admonished the widow to exercise restraints while lamenting the lost of her husband, lest we offend God who deemed it fit to call the deceased at this material time.
He reminded the family that death is an inevitable end of every human being, as such we must accept what God has done in good fate, even though the lost is a painful one.
He said as families gather to rejoice at the birth of a child, so shall families also gather to mourn the death of loved ones; but in so doing, the lawmaker said we must not make comments that may offend God, as nothing ever done Him happens by accident.
As maternal uncles to his mother, Gagdi said the Gizo family is his extended family, as such he was directly affected by the of Mankwat who also doubles as his friend and political associate. According to Gagdi, his close ties with the deceased had made it mandatory for him to come directly from Abuja to the deceased house to pay his condolences before even going to his own house.
Responding on behalf of the Gizo family, Chief Amos Gizo appreciated the lawmaker for defying his busy schedules to personally commiserate with them in their moment of grief, while also condoling the lawmaker on the death of his father some time last month.
