On a condolence visit to the Aduda family compound in Karu, Abuja, Malam Bello, accompanied by the FCTA Permanent Secretary, Mr Olusade Adesola, said the Senator’s late parents’ efforts had established the Aduda family name an institution in the FCT.
“Your family is currently an institution in the FCT thanks to the sacrifices of your illustrious parents,” the Minister stated.

Senator Aduda, whom he has referred to as a brother since his appointment as Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, was also congratulated by the Minister.
He prayed for the soul of the deceased clergyman’s rest and pledged that the Administration will attend his funeral.

He said “The FCT Minister is the father of the FCT, the Governor of the FCT and the one in charge of the FCT. So, his visit means a lot to all of us and for him to have visited us has made us to be excited because we, as a family in the FCT, we take each other as one. So, we are indeed very grateful and very happy to have received him.
Senator Aduda described his father as a wonderful disciplinarian who put his children on the path of righteousness and was responsible largely for their successes in life
