Rev. Pam said he received the news of the demise of the late Deputy Senate President as rude however said “death was a necessary end as we shall all depart this world at the allotted time given to us by God our Creator”, he said!
In a press release signed by Pam Ayuba, his Media aide, Rev Pam describes the losses as too painful to Plateau state and Nigeria at large assessing the roles the deceased played while still alive in the development of the state and Nigeria.
He said his acquaintance with the two was on peace and development which they do talk about when the time warranted. He said they will surely be missed considering their grassroots background as Politicians who knows their onions.
While commiserating with the families of the two elder statesmen, Rev Pam also console with the Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong as Chief mourner.
He played God for the peaceful repose of their souls and urged the immediate families of the deceased to take solace in God who gives and takes.
