The emir in a message signed by his spokesperson, Abdulazeez Arowona, noted that his long reign on the throne witnessed unprecedented growth, progress and socio-economic development in the ancient town of Share

"I pray Allah to grant him paradise and forgive all his shortcomings", he said.

Mr Ahmed, in the message signed by his spokesperson, Muyideen Akorede, said he enjoyed a close relationship with the deceased, through his guidance and prayers, while his administration lasted.

Mr Ahmed described late Olupako as a bridge-builder and icon of peace who preached and worked for a harmonious relationship between Share and other communities in the state.

He urged the people of Share to accept Mr Dosumu's death, who lived a pious and fulfilled life, as an act of God.

The former governor, who effected Dosumu's upgrading to a first-class status, said he will be remembered for championing unity and peaceful co-existence among his people.
