JUST IN: Former senator, Munir Muse, dies at 81

The former lawmaker representing Lagos Central Senatorial District in the House of Assembly, Munir Muse, is dead.

His son, Sulaimon Muse, announced the former senator’s death on Tuesday.

While announcing his father’s death, Sulaimon described him as kind-hearted.

He said, “I just lost a very caring and kind-hearted father, Senator Munirudeen Adekunle Muse.

“I saw you last, right inside the Lagos Central mosque. I never knew that was the last time I would set my eyes on you alive.

“I called you two Fridays ago. You even called me back thereafter, and we discussed. I never knew you were saying goodbye to me.”

It was gathered that Muse, a former Apapa Port Manager and former Chairman of Apapa Local Government, died Tuesday morning.

He died barely two weeks after his 80th birthday.

An All Progressives Congress chieftain, Joe Igbokwe, confirmed the former senator’s death to our correspondent on the telephone.

The Chairman of APC in Lagos, Henry Ajomale, said, “He is a community mobilizer and leader from Apapa. He is a gentleman, a pillar for our party, and one of the architects of APC in this state.”
