Ghali Na’Abba, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, has passed away at the age of 64. Born on September 27, 1958, Na’Abba breathed his last in Abuja on Wednesday morning after a prolonged battle with illness, as confirmed by family sources.

The late Speaker had struggled with his health for an extended period, undergoing medical treatment abroad and spending several months there before recovering and returning to Nigeria. Sources close to the family revealed that Ghali Na’Abba would be laid to rest in Abuja today in accordance with Islamic funeral rites.

Ghali Na’Abba transitioned into the political arena as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, securing the party’s candidacy for Kano Municipal Federal Constituency, a position he successfully won in the April 1999 general elections. Following the political turmoil that led to the departure of the first Speaker of the Fourth Republic, Salisu Buhari, Na’Abba ascended to the role of Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Educated at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, where he pursued political science, Ghali Na’Abba graduated in 1979, marking the beginning of a distinguished political career. His passing is mourned by the political community, and he will be remembered for his contributions to the nation’s legislative history.
