The irony! Journalist Jaafar Jaafar broke the news this morning. What he wrote below:
Senator Omar Hambagda, a staunch supporter of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s third-term agenda, died on Democracy Day.
For supporting the agenda that nearly crippled Nigeria’s democracy, Senator Hambagda was once drenched in rains of stones by his constituents.
Born July 28, 1949, Senator Hambagda represented Borno South Senatorial District and chaired a subcommittee on the review of constitution — a committee that approved what was then widely termed as “diabolic agenda”.
May his soul rest in peace, amen.
