The late Prof. Habu Galadima has been described by President Muhammdu Buhari as one of the best Director-Generals to ever head the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS).
The President said this on Sunday via a statement by his official spokesman, Garba Shehu which contained his reaction to the death of Prof. Galadima.
Galadima died on sunday morning after a brief illness. His death came less than one year after assuming office as the Director-General of NIPSS in August 2019.
Buhari in his reaction said the late DG is “an intellectual colossus who stood tall in the field of scholarship and knowledge.”
He added that “Galadima was an eloquent and remarkable intellectual whose contributions to scholarship were vast & remarkable, & Nigeria will continue to remember him for these contributions,” the President said while commiserating with his family, friends, the govt. & people of Nasarawa State.
President Buhari noted that “with the death Galadima, NIPPS and Nigeria at large has lost one of the best DGs ever appointed to head the institute.”
He prayed to Allah to forgive the soul of the departed and reward his good deeds with Al Jannah.
