The Patron of the Unity, Freedom Group in Lagos State, Engr Adedeji Doherty has on behalf of himself and members of the group commiserated with Prof Isa Odidi a former Director of Diaspora in the 2019 Atiku Abubakar Campaign team, over the death of his father in-law, the Sarkin Dan Kano, Alhaji (Prof) Mukhtar Adnan, who died at the age of 95 years.
Prof Mukhtar Adnan was the first Education Commissioner of former Kano State.
He was an elitist and a thorough bred individual, who believed so much in “child education”.
This was evident in the lives of his Children, as most of them are PhD holders.
Notable amongst them are, Dr Mansur Mukhtar, a former Finance Minister and Dr (Mrs) Amina Odidi who alongside her husband Prof Isa Odidi were the first Nigerians and Africans to set-up a Pharmaceutical manufacturing plant in China.
Alhaji Mukhtar Adnan has since been buried according to Islamic rites.
Engr Doherty prayed that Allah would grant him Jannatul Firdaus and forgive his since.
He also prayed that Allah would grant the family, friends and associates the fortitude to bear the loss.
