In a statement issued by the Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, the Speaker expressed his heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Sokoto State over his death.

While praying God to comfort his immediate family over the painful loss, he prayed that the Almighty God will grant him eternal rest.

“Hon Wamakko was a dedicated lawmaker who had the progress of Kware/Wamakko federal constituency, Sokoto State and the entire Nigeria at heart,” Mr. Hassan quoted Mr. Dogara as saying. “As we mourn his painful untimely departure, I pray that God will bring solace to his family who will miss him the most and grant him eternal rest.”

The Speaker described the late lawmaker as a patriotic, committed, peace-loving and hardworking legislator who gave his best for the service of his people and said the House will greatly miss him.
