Late Alhaji Musa who was known for his very strong views on politics and public policy Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa, a former governor of Kaduna state, has been declared dead. His death was announced by Shehu Sani, a former senator representing Kaduna Central in the Nigerian Senate.
Late Alhaji Musa was elected governor of Kaduna state in 1979 on the platform of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP), a party founded by Mallam Aminu Kano. As governor, he was stalemated by the Kaduna state house of assembly, which was dominated by opposition party members.
He was unable to form a cabinet since he refused to nominate opposition members and the House refused to ratify his candidates. Eventually, the House impeached him in June 1981, making him the first Nigerian state governor ever to be impeached.
