Death is inevitable. It is the end of life on earth literally and the beginning of a new life hereafter. The Bible makes clear the reality of life and death as well as time for everything under every season. For the purpose of emphasis, “There is a time to be born, a time to live happily, rejoice and enjoy the fullness of life. On the other hand, there is a time to mourn and say goodbye to loved ones.” How sad!
I, Dr. Patrick Dakum joins in mourning with excruciating pains the deaths of Chief Daguk Gwanle Fompun (Makaman Mangu), former permanent secretary and head of Plateau State Civil service Commission as well as Chief Alexander Molwus, former chief of staff to Gov. Dariye and special adviser on political matters to Gov. Jang.
Their deaths came to me as a shock and one tragedy too many. Together with them, we have made significant efforts over time to improve the future of Plateau state in many ramifications. I can attest to the fact that their contributory roles were acknowledged and history is well pleased. They died fulfilled having served humanity in many respects and paid their dues. We will surely miss them but their names and legacies will remain engraved in our hearts.
My sincere condolences to their families and Plateau State at large. May their souls rest in peace with the Lord.
