Less than three months that he won the ruling party senatorial ticket, the Jigawa Central All Progressive Congress (APC) senatorial candidate, Alhaji Tijjani Ibrahim Gaya, has been confirmed dead.
The politician died yesterday Saturday, August 13, 2022, in a hospital in China where he was being treated for a lung infection.
It was gathered that he was earlier admitted at a private clinic in Abuja before he was flown out to China when his condition deteriorated.
Ibrahim died barely three months after he won the APC senatorial ticket for his zone where he polled 361 votes.
The deceased represented Dutse/Kiyawa federal constituency in the House of Representatives between 2011 to 2015.
Meanwhile, Governor of Jigawa State, Muhammad Badaru, in a condolence message through his media aide, Habibu Kila, said Mr Ibrahim’s death “is a great loss not only to his family but to the Muslim Ummah."
