The Bauchi State Government has confirmed the death of Senator Ali Wakili.

He died at the age of 58.

Wakili had slumped on Saturday morning at his Abuja residence and was rushed to the hospital, where he was certified dead.

The President of the Senate prayed Allah to grant Mallam Wakili a place among the righteous in Aljannah Firdaus and his family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

"Mallam Ali Wakili is one lawmaker you can never be in doubt where he stands on a particular issue".

"We have indeed lost a distinguished parliamentarian, easy going and courageous person who had worked tirelessly both in the Senate chamber and outside to defend the interest of his constituents, Bauchi State and the downtrodden members of the society in the country at large".
