*A TRIBUTE FROM CHIEF DR PATRICK S DAKUM *
I received with great shock the sad news of the demise of our father and mentor,Prof.Dakum G.Shown.
The sad reality is coming at a time this great man’s uncommon guidance and leadership was still needed to propel us as a people into more greatness.
For me,we have lost a Son,Father,Leader and mentor who has had and shown great love for the growth of Plateau State and Nigeria.
I mourn with the immediate family of the Late Prof Dakum G. Shown,the Mupun Nation, Plateau State and Nigeria on the loss of one of its finest in all ramifications and urge us all to go through this moment together as one.
The Late Prof Dakum G. Shown has left for us a template to follow which has and will continue to define true representation of our culture and values as a people.
His impact in shaping the political and educational space in Plateau state and Nigeria will continue to serve as a reference point to move us forward as a people. I recall our several meetings where you never relented in pursuing good for our Mupun Nation.
Today we accept your passage as a perfect will of God as we know you have left legacies for upcoming generations to follow.You have contributed immensely in placing the Mupun Nation rightly where it should as Chairman Board Of Trustees of MUCDA.
Your family, the Mupun Nation, Plateau State and indeed Nigeria will greatly miss you.
Rest with the Lord as we remain confident of seeing you on the glorious resurrection morning.
