The apex northern socio-cultural group, Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), has paid tribute to one of its founding fathers, Malam Adamu Fika who passed away last Tuesday.

The ACF National Publicity Secretary, Professor Tukur Muhammad-Baba, in a statement, described the deceased as a nationalist, towering giant of a public servant, elder statesman and a man who served Nigeria in several notable positions.

According to the statement, “Late Adamu Fika was one of the early crops of young northerners who formed the immediate post-colonial pool of well-trained, professional and dedicated civil servants that epitomised excellence in selfless service.

“He was among the erstwhile civil servants, of whom the North and Nigeria will forever be proud of, who saw to the smooth transition from regional to state administration following the very first in the series of state creation exercises following the abolition of regional governments. In this regard, late Mallam Fika was in the league of such equally towering public service giants as late Ali Akilu, Justice Buba Ardo, Yahaya Gusau, Sunday Awoniyi, Ahmed Joda, to name a few.

“Until his death, he had remained a highly respected and highly revered ‘consultant’ of sorts to those who sought counsel on how to handle intricate state matters, and known for his humility and dignified comportment.”

He extended the condolence of the ACF to late Malam Fika’s immediate and extended families and friends across Nigeria, the federal and Yobe State governments and the Emir of Fika and the Fika Emirate Council.
