The Maritime Workers Union of (MWUN) under the leadership of Dr. (Prince) Adewale Adeyanju, fnli, HFCPSP, commiserates with the Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Prince Mohammed Bello – Koko over the recent death of his father, Alhaji Muhammad Koko, the Emir of Koko in Kebbi state.
In a statement released by John Kennedy Ikemefuna, Head Media, the PG was deeply pained by this loss;
“We as a Union in the maritime sector, are deeply pained over the sad occurrence and fervently pray that the Almighty Allah in his Infinite mercy grant him eternal rest; and to the family he left behind, give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
The entire executives of the Union recognise the brilliant and dynamic leadership roles of the Emir in the development of Koko while alive; hence, the royalty of Kebbi traditional council and the entirety of Koko people will equally miss the virtues of the late Emir.
He however prayed for repose for the soul of the departed, “we pray that the late Emir’s soul, Muhammad Koko finds rest in the bossom of the Almighty Allah, Ameen.”
