Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong has described as a big loss the death of the first class ruler, the Ujah of Anaguta Chiefdom.
Governor Lalong said the death of the Royal Father is a great loss not only to his immediate family and people of Anaguta Chiefdom, but to the entire State and Nigeria.
He described the deceased royal father as a peacemaker and unifier who did everything possible to support the peace initiatives that led to the restoration of harmony, tolerance and peaceful coexistence among the various ethnic and religious groups in Jos North.
He said since his coronation, the Member of of the Plateau State Council of Chiefs and Emirs has left no stone unturned to assist Government in implementing its agenda on reconciliation and healing which has provided the right atmosphere for dialogue, interface and sustained conversion for peace.
Lalong also appreciated the late Ujah of Anaguta for facilitating the creation of jobs and skills acquisition for the youths in his domain as well as collaborated with security agencies to adress criminal activities in the Chiefdom and the entire State.
While praying God to grant him eternal rest and comfort the family as well as the entire Anaguta nation, Lalong said his legacies of peace, tolerance and economic development will continue to be remembered.
