Responding to the news on social media, Mahama was pained at the loss of the staunch NDC follower.
“Sudden news of the passing of my brother and friend, Alhaji Bature Iddrisu. This is a great personal loss and for the NDC family. His wit and great sense of analysis will be sorely missed. May Allah the Merciful grant him Jannatul Firdaus.” Mahama wrote on Facebook.
