Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State, described the traditional ruler’s death as a monumental loss not only to his Emirate but to the entire State and the country at large.
“Gombe State has indeed lost one of its finest traditional rulers, who worked relentlessly with other royal fathers in the state and offered counsels and fatherly guidance for the peace, unity, growth, and development of the state in particular and Nigeria as a whole,” he said.
“The late Emir was a humble, decent and down-to-earth traditional ruler, who cared for his subjects as well as the unity and progress of the State.
“His reign was remarkable and eventful,” he added.
The Governor, therefore, on behalf of the Government and people of the State, commiserates with the Royal family, people of Funakeye Emirate, the Chairman of Gombe State Council of Emirs and Chiefs, Alhaji Abubakar Shehu -Abubakar III, over the loss.
He prayed to Almighty Allah to grant the late Royal father Aljannat Firdaus.
