Chidoka wished Eid Mubarak to all his Muslim friends.

The former Minister of Aviation arrived Kano yesterday to condole with the family of his Late Deputy Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Uba Hassan.

“I learnt an interesting Islamic culture during the visit, the family said they were planning to visit with me to find out if I have any transaction with late Uba that they need to settle.

“I answered in the negative. His brother said it is a requirement of Islam to ensure that all debts and obligations to people are settled.

“It gave me a new meaning to the saying ‘Rest in Peace’.” Chidoka wrote on his official social media handle.

During the event, Chief Chidoka expressed apprehension on his Twitter handle when the time to ride horses with the Emir entourage came.

He tweeted: “Going to dress for Durbar, my first time riding a horse. Any advise from riders?”
