Saraki Mourns Over Death of Former Nasarawa Governor, Doma

Published

Senate President Bukola Saraki has said he is in grief over the death of the immediate past governor of Nasarawa State, Alhaji Aliyu Akwe Doma, describing the deceased as a committed public servant.

Late Doma died on Tuesday in an Israeli hospital. He served the country in many capacities with distinction.

Saraki in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu and made available to newsmen in Abuja, said the demise of Doma is sad and irreparable.

Saraki however, prayed God to repose the soul of the deceased and grant his family and loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss.

It said, “It is sad to hear of the demise of ex-governor Akwe Doma. He was a contemporary during my tenure as Governor of Kwara State,” Saraki said. “My interactions with him during the period revealed a man with deep intellect, experience and passion for service.

“Little wonder that he rose through the ranks to become a Permanent Secretary in the old Plateau State and later served as deputy to a former Governor of the State, late Chief Solomon Lar, before he was elected substantive Governor of Nasarawa State and served from 2007 – 2011.

“My condolences go to his immediate family at this period of grief. I also commiserate with the people and government of Nasarawa State over this irreparable loss,” Saraki said.
