A governorship aspirant in Kwara State, Alhaji Tajudeen Audu, has described the death of the pioneer ICPC chairman, late Justice Mustapha Akanbi as a colossal loss to Kwara state and Nigeria at large.
In his condolence message, Audu, whom is also the Makaman Lafiagi, said the late legal luminary was always an inspiration especially during his time as the pioneer chairman of the anti-graft agency where he performed excellently well to curb the menace of corruption in the country.
He further said that “Late Justice Mustapha Akanbi will be most remembered for his contributions to nation building and how he courageously fronted the anti – corruption war not forgetting the roles he played in the Muslim Ummah.
“His wealth of experience in the legal profession will be greatly missed.”
While praying to Allah to forgive his shortcomings and grant him Aljanatul firdaus, the governorship aspirant noted that a life well spent in the service of humanity will suffice for this loss.
