In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the Zamfara State Football Association, NFF General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu, wrote: “The Nigeria Football Federation and indeed, the entire Nigeria football family is in grief over the demise of this highly accomplished, yet humble administrator, who rose to the top by dint of hard work, diligence and tireless commitment to excellence.

“As Vice Chairman of then Nigeria Premier League (NPL) and Zonal Coordinator of Bauchi zone of the National Sports Commission, Shehu Garba acquitted himself brilliantly and left his footprints in the sands of time. It is so sad and heart –rending to refer to him in the past tense.
