In statement signed by the Senator and made available to newsmen in Abuja, Ogembe said he was saddened by the death of the Islamic scholar whose wealth of knowledge has imparted the lives of many.
Ogembe noted that Alhaji Galadima’s tenure as the Chief Imam of Ebira central mosque would forever be remembered for fostering peace and unity among religious groups in Kogi central and beyond.
“He was a devout Muslim leader, committed businessman and prominent scholar,” Ogembe said.
“It’s sad we have lost a statesman and religious leader whose zest for uprightness and capacity for impartation would be greatly missed by all and sundry,” he said.

He prayed for Allah’s mercy for the deceased Iman and for the fortitude to bear the loss by his family and all well wishers he left behind.
