The 1993 presidential aspirant of the National Republican Convention; Alhaji Bashir Tofa, one of the leading candidates in the 1993 Presidential election has been confirmed dead.



Details of his death are still sketchy but the elder statesman was said to have been ill for a while.

One of Tofa’s daughters, who had debunked the rumors of his death when it trended on social media three days ago, confirmed his demise on Monday morning.

Until his death, Tofa was known for speaking up for the country and suggesting ideas through which some of the crisis affecting Nigeria could be tackled.

Tofa contested with MKO Abiola in the inconclusive election.
