Senate Resolves To Name Kaduna Airport After Abba Kyari



Late elder stateman, Abba Kyari, who was the military governor of the defunct North Central State, is set to be honoured as the airport in his state will be named after him. 

A resolution to name the Kaduna International Airport after the late Abba Kyari, was on Wednesday, adopted by members of the Nigerian Senate.


According to PREMIUM TIMES, the lawmakers also urged the federal government to immortalise the late brigadier-general by naming a national monument in his honour.


The lawmakers’ call came after some of them took turns to eulogise the late general and elder stateman, who was the military governor of the defunct North Central State, and died on November 25 in Abuja after a brief illness. He was aged 80.


While describing his death as painful, the senators thanked God for the fruitful and exemplary life that he lived.


It was gathered that after observing a minute silence in his honour, the Senate resolved to send a delegation to condole with his family, the people and government of Borno State.


Sabi Abdullahi (APC, Niger North) thereafter added a prayer that the Kaduna International Airport be named after him, which was seconded by Shehu Sani (PRP, Kaduna Central).
