Alhaji Balarabe Musa, a chieftain of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) and the chairman of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) said the best way Nigerians can honour late Chief Gani Fawehinmi is to continue in the pursuit of the dream he had for Nigeria.
Musa said this while addressing guests at the 80th post humorous birthday of the late Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) held on Sunday in Lagos where he spoke at length on the lives of Gani.
While describing the late legal luminary as a great and inspiring soul, the PRP chieftain said, “In life, just as in death, Chief Gani Fawehinmi was a determined and inspiring soul. We are here sombre and mournful over a large void left behind by Chief Gani Fawehinmi. It is a void that shall be extremely difficult to fill. But we are, individually and collectively, challenged and determined to continue with the struggles from where Chief Gani Fawehinmi lefty off.”
He pointed out that while the late lawyer was growing up, he was inspired and touched by the works and struggles of people like Fidel Castro, Mao Tse Tung, Ben Gurion, and Sir Winston Churchill.
