The Niger State Government confirmed his death in a press statement on Wednesday.

The statement by the Secretary to State Government, Ahmed Matane, noted Aliyu died on Wednesday in Kaduna State following a brief illness.

“The patriotic tendencies and excellent handling of legislative duties concerning the welfare of people and the nation demonstrated by late Senator Nuhu Aliyu are worthy of emulations.

Nuhu Aliyu, a Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party was the first chairman of the PDP in Niger state before being elected into the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 1999 and was re-elected to the same position in 2003 and 2007.

Born in 1941, the deceased studied Advanced Police Management at the Police College Jos and rose to become a Deputy Inspector General of Police.
