Former two-time Senator from Katsina State, who represented Daura Senatorial Zone from 2003-2011, Kanti Bello, is dead.
Bello who was the pioneer Managing Director of Katsina Steel Rolling Mill died in the early hours of Tuesday, in Abuja. His death was confirmed by the younger brother to former Katsina State Deputy Governor, Abdullahi Faskari, in an abrupt statement.
He said, “I am directed to inform everybody that we lost Senator Kanti Bello early hours of this morning (Tuesday) at Abuja. Burial arrangement will be announced later.”
Bello, a Chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC in Katsina state before his death, recently stated that he regretted inviting President Muhammadu Buhari into politics.
The former Senate Chief Whip explained that his regret was based on the fact that the past two years of Buhari’s government has been a “waste.”
