Dr. Junaid Muhammad, a lawmaker in the second republic died on Thurdsay.
Muhammed, educated as a medical doctor in the former Soviet Union Republic and specialized afterwards in the United Kingdom as a neurosurgeon, was also a social critic.
He later left medical practice to join Malam Aminu Kano full time in the progressive politics, because he was committed personally to him and his Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
He was to become one of the leaders of the party and also a member of the House of Representatives.
One of his siblings, Dr. Ahmed Salik was also a former House of Representatives member who represented Dala federal constituency.
