Sokoto State commissioner of land, housing is dead

The late Gatawa

Sokoto State commissioner of land and housing, Surajo Gatawa, is dead, according to a government source.

The source which disclosed this on Sunday night, however, did not go into details.

Another source, according to reports, said that funeral prayers had been scheduled for 7pm at his residence at Sama Road, opposite Babban Tanki, Sokoto.

The deceased was among the 26 commissioners Aminu Tambuwal, the governor of the state appointed in November of 2018.

The late Gatawa first served as commissioner of science and technology but was redeployed to the ministry of lands and housing.

This is the second time in three days that Tambuwal would lose someone close to him, considering that Haruna Usman, the governor’s uncle, died last Thursday.
