President Muhammadu Buhari has described the death of a paramount ruler of the Jukun race and Chairman Taraba State Council of Traditional Rulers, the Aku Uka of Wukari, Dr Shekarau Angyu, as a great loss not only to Taraba State, but also Nigeria as a whole.
In his reaction to the demise of paramount ruler, President Buhari 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 can’t find the right words to describe.”
“The late Aku Uka of Wukari was a simple man who avoided publicity and controversy throughout his life of service to his people and the country.
“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,” the President said.
