Editor’s Death Commentary On The Nation’s Security, Says Aregbesola

Suleiman-Bisalla-300x224Governor Rauf Aregbesola has described the death of a management staff of New Telegraph, Mr Suleiman Bisalla, as depressing, miserable and sad piece of news.

Mr Bisalla was among the 21 people who died at the popular EMAB plaza, Abuja, following a bomb blast yesterday.

In a statement by the director, bureau of communications and strategy, Office of the Governor, Mr Semiu Okanlawon, Aregbesola described the untimely death of Mr Bisalla as one that has once again robbed the media industry and the country of a young, energetic man and a fine journalist.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives yesterday observed a minute silence in honour of victims of the terrorist bombing which rocked a parking lot at a crowded plaza in Abuja, killing 21 people and injuring 52 others.

Lawmakers also condemned the recent terror attacks in several villages in Kaduna and Mubi in Adamawa State.

The House called on the federal government to immortalize the former director general of the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and former minister of information, Prof. Dora Akunyili, by naming the NAFDAC Headquarters after her.

It also urged the federal government to immortalize the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, who died on June 6, 2014.
