The lawmaker, representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Magnus Abe, has described the death of his colleague, Senator Khalifa Zanna as shocking and painful.

Abe, while reacting yesterday to the demise of the Senator who died (Saturday) at the National Hospital, Abuja, said Nigeria has lost a vibrant, dogged and resilient Lawmaker whose tenacity was exemplary.

Senator Zanna was representing Borno Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, where he was Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Gas and Member, Senate Committee on Navy.

Abe, in a statement signed by his spokesperson Honour Sirawoo, disclosed that Zanna was a proud Nigerian who came into the Senate in 2011, and was re-elected by his people under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 28 Senatorial elections, saying his ingenious contributions to legislative business and issues of National development will be greatly missed.

“Zanna was an advocate of a united Nigeria; he was passionate about a lasting solution to the problem of insurgency in the North-East; he was committed to a prosperous Nation as propounded by our change vehicle, the APC,” Abe said.

The Chairman Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream) noted that Senator Zanna was a successful businessman with good track record in Public Service.

“We, therefore, join his family and Nigerians to mourn his demise and pray that his soul rest in peace,” he concluded.
