The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North Constituency of the Northern Region, Alhaji Alhassan Suhuyini has eulogized his predecessor, Alhaji Abubakari sumani who was buried today August 13, 2017 in Tamale.
The former lawmaker and Ambassador of Islamic Republic of Saudi Arabia died on Saturday August 12, 2017 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where he was admission receiving treatment.
Suhuyini described him as father whose words of encouragement and cautions are eternal.
In a solemn tribute to the late lawmaker he said;” even if unstated our use of Social Media shouldn’t be without ethics that uphold our traditional courtesies.
Beside politics our late father and former Tamale North MP, former ambassador and former Board Chair GHAPOHA and PPA respectively Hon Alhaji Abukari Sumani was a royal and it is only conscionable that the family was allowed to take control of the loss and appropriately inform all relevant stakeholders before our public expressions of our commiserations. I’m sorry I disappointed all those who monitored this page for the confirmation of the sad news.
Now you know it’s true and he has been laid to rest in Tamale.
I had a special relationship with him before and during life in politics.
Daddy, your words of encouragement and cautions are eternal. This Ramadan when I visited you like I always did, though unwell you surprised your care takers by walking out to see me off. At the funeral of Alhaj Hudu Yahaya’s mum last year when I came to greet you, as usual you hugged me and said to reinforce my belief “it is God not man, who will continue to elevate you, so fear not”.
May Allah grant you jannatul Firdaus.
A Great guide and Inspirer. Rest In Peace
