Senator representing Katsina North Senatorial District in the 8th Senate, Senator Mustapha Bukar, is dead.
He was aged 63.
Mr. Mustapha represented President Muhammadu Buhari’s senatorial district.
He passed away this morning at the Nizamiye hospital in Abuja after a brief illness.
His death was confirmed by his elder brother.
Mr. Bukar’s death came less than a week after the deputy majority leader of the House of Representatives, Umar Jibril, died after a protracted illness.
About two weeks ago, another senator, Ali Wakili, passed away.
He is survived by two wives and 12 children.
