President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has lamented over the death of former minister of works and deputy chairman of SURE-P program, Major General Mamman Kotangora whom he described as fine officer and a complete gentleman.
Senator Mark was reacting to the news of Kotangora’s demise in Abuja.He said: “I received with shock and deep sorrow the news of the death of General Kotangora. I feel so sad about this . I never knew he was even sick. He was a brilliant officer and a distinguished administrator.
“I recall the revolution he brought to bear in the construction of road networks across Nigeria as the then minister of works and housing. He was honest and a disciplinarian who never compromised on standards. He was a goal- getter”.
Senator Mark added that General Kotangora was a true nationalist and a patriot who stood to be counted when it mattered.
His legacies, Senator Mark maintained are legendary and ” I can say without fear of contradiction that they would continue to stand the test of time”.
He told the government and people of Niger State especially the bereaved family to take solace in the fact that General Kotangora lived an eventful and accomplished life worthy of emulation.No tags for this post.
