President Muhammadu Buhari has described the death of the Aku Uka of Wukari, Dr. Shekarau Angyu Masa-Ibi, who was the paramount traditional ruler and Chairman, Taraba State Council of Chiefs, as a great loss not only to Taraba State, but also to Nigeria as a whole.
In his reaction to the demise of the Taraba monarch, the President said “the passing of Shekarau Angyu at this time when the country needed his immense wisdom and knowledge in its efforts to overcome its challenges is a great loss for which I cannot find the right words to describe.”
According to President Buhari, “the late paramount ruler was a simple man who avoided publicity and controversy throughout his life of service to his people and the country.”
The President noted that, “though death is inevitable, we cannot forget the immense contributions of the late Aku Uka to the promotion of peace, harmony, unity, tolerance and peaceful coexistence in his community and the country at large.”
