Reacting to the death of what he called a distinguished historian and thoroughbred academic, Atiku said Professor Abubakar’s contributions to scholarship and promotion of knowledge are so immense and immeasurable to be forgotten for many years to come.

The Wazirin Adamawa added that that the people of the Northeast are proud to produce such a great scholar of international acclaim.

He called on his students to immortalise the scholar as part of the the efforts to keep his legacy alive.
