According to PDP, he carried out this responsibility diligently and reduced corruption index in the Country by using the PCC Platform to expose corrupt officers in government.

“Maitama Sule has left us at a time his wise and experienced counsel is still needed. His demise is not only a loss to the Nation but also to Africa. We will miss his astute contribution on various issues of national development.”

The PDP prayed Allah rest his soul and the grant the fortitude for his family to bear this great loss.
