Atiku Abubakar, a previous Nigeria Vice President, has portrayed the demise of Alhaji Ahmed Joda, previous Permanent Secretary, as “fall of an iroko”.
Atiku, in an articulation endorsed without anyone else on Friday in Abuja, depicted Joda as an extraordinary Nigerian and original of Adamawa indigenes who made monstrous commitment to the development of the state and the country.
He said, “Today, our delightful Adamawa State has lost a monster. For sure, an iroko tree has fallen in Nigeria, especially Northern Nigeria.
“The information on the passing of Joda accompanies some sort of a shock despite the fact that he lived to a prime age.
“He was a sparkling star in the cosmic system of Nigeria’s public servants.
“Joda, with a couple of his companions, composed the standard book of Nigeria’s considerate help and his impressions will remain indelible.”
Atiku implored that the Almighty Allah acknowledges his spirit and furnishes his family with mettle to bear the departure of a direct and notable patriarch.
