Ex Governor buried amidst eulogies, tears

The remains of the former Governor of Taraba, Danbaba Suntai, were laid to rest on Saturday in his hometown, Suntai, in Bali Local Government Area of the state amidst tears and eulogies.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that a cross section of Nigerian who were touched by the late governor’s kind gesture and sterling leadership qualities could not hold back tears as they gave their testimonies of his legacies.

One of them, Gov. Darius Ishaku of Taraba, described the late Suntai, as an epitome of humility with great sense of humour and passion for the development of the state.

Ishaku, however, thanked all Nigerians, especially those who stood by the late governor during his trying moments and in death.

He said the love they showed him was a great source of strength to the family and the people of the state.

The governor urged Suntai’s family to be consoled by the legacies and virtues of the late icon, who he said would be remembered by people for what he believed and stood for.

Earlier, Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State urged the people of Taraba to imbibe the virtues of Suntai.

Fayose said they should continue to promote the good things he stood for while alive for the development of the state and country.

In his remarks, Gov. Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State said the late governor did well for the people of the state.

The President of the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria, Most Rev. Musa Philibus, at the funeral service, enjoined Nigerians to live a life of service to humanity.

Philibus urged Nigerians to bear in mind that everyone would give account of their stewardship to God.

“There is glory and happiness in death when we live a life that pleases God.

“We should think about pleasing God rather thinking of how to bring others down in order to get to the top,’’ he said.

NAN reports that the funeral was attended by dignitaries from all walks of life, including Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau State and the immediate past governor of Benue State, Dr. Gabriel Suswam.

Others were the First Executive Governor of Taraba, Rev. Jolly Nyame; the pioneer military governor of Taraba CP Ambrose Afolahan, representatives of the governors of Adawawa, Benue and Nasarawa states, as well as some National Assembly members, among others.

The deceased, who was aged 55, died on June 28 in the USA where he was recuperating from injuries he sustained when a private aircraft he was flying crashed on October 25, 2012 in Yola.

He was the governor of the state between 2007 and 2015.
