Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has commiserated with the Alanamu and Ahman-Pategi families over the death of their son Dr Alfa Saadu who has just died in the United Kingdom.
Alfa, a renowned medical doctor, on Tuesday succumbed to complications from Corona virus (COVID-19) in the UK where he had lived and worked for many years.
“We commiserate with the Alanamus of Ilorin and Ahman-Pategi of Patigi over this sad loss. The consolation is that Dr Alfa made tremendous contributions to the advancement of humanity through his medical profession. As a public health expert, he saved many lives in London as he did across Africa. He will be sorely missed,” AbdulRazaq said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Rafiu Ajakaye
“Our condolences go to the immediate and extended families of the late Dr Alfa. We pray to the Almighty Allah to grant him al-jannah firdaus, keep his family after him, and save our world from this public health enemy number one. That said, this death closer home should remind our people that COVID-19 is not a hoax as some persons have claimed. Our best shot is to take all precautions and respect safety protocols recommended by health authorities.”
