Sad exit of Marafan Sokoto

Daily Trust - - OPINION -

The Hero and Icon has fallen Umar Aliyu Shinkafi.

He built over ten Jumu’at Masjids sin­gle hand­edly.

He built over hun­dred hamsa sallawat masjids. He built many Is­lamic schools. He spon­sored many stu­dents to pur­sue their education within and out­side the coun­try.

He built many houses for the less priv­i­leged free of charge.

He writes off many med­i­cal bills for hun­dreds of pa­tients.

For over forty years he has been spon­sor­ing no less than 20 peo­ple to per­form Hajj rites.

He has un­der­taken many phil­an­thropic ges­tures too nu­mer­ous to men­tion. Not only Zam­fara, Kebbi and Sokoto the en­tire Nige­ria will missed the exit of Marafan Sokoto. May Jan­natul Fir­daus be his fi­nal abode.
