The Member representing Jema’a constituency at the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Hon. Labari Tela has described the death of the Bishop of Kafanchan Catholic Diocese, Dr. Danlami Joseph Bagobiri as a loss not to the constituency but to the State and nation at large.
The Legislator while reacting to the demise of the Bishop on Tuesday told Journalists in an interview that the Bishop would be remembered for the fatherly role he played in mediation to ensuring peaceful coexistence especially amongst religious and ethnic lineages.
“Bishop Bagobiri was a detribalised Nigerian who believed in equality and justice for the downtroden.
“Within his lifetime, the Bishop had positively affected the lives of many including the young ones and widows and would be remembered for his good works, ” he said.
Hon. Tela urged Nigerians from all works of life, irrespective of religious affiliation to emulate the lifestyle of the late Bishop Bagobiri whom he said was loved by many.
The Legislator then, prayed for the repose of his soul and for the entire Catholic and southern Kaduna community the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
