The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has commiserated with the family of the late former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Dahiru Musdapher, the people of Jigawa State and Nigerians, over the death of the former CJN.
Obaseki noted that Justice Musdapher’s death is a great loss to his family and the nation at large.
While praying the Almighty Allah to grant his soul eternal rest, the governor said that “the late Jurist will be remembered for his life-long contributions to the nation’s judiciary which have been referenced by eminent Nigerians since the news of his death broke.”
He said Justice Musdapher’s commitment to hard work saw him rise through the judiciary ranks, beginning with a laudable practice in the bar, his appointment as the Attorney General of old Kaduna State, a Judge in the Kano State Judiciary and his rise to the position of the Chief Judge of the state before he was promoted to the position of the Justice of the Court of Appeal.
He was elevated as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria and retired five years ago as the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).
Obaseki consoled the family to “find comfort in the good and exemplary life of Justice Musdapher,” which he described as “a model for Nigerians aspiring to attain similar height in life.”
