Taraba State Governor, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku has commiserated with the Nigerian Union of Journalists NUJ,Taraba State Chapter on the passing on of one of its member, Ahmed Wakili of the Correspondents Chapel.

In a Press release signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the State Governor, Hassan Mijinyawa described the sudden death, which occurred yesterday at the Specialists Hospital Jalingo as a journey that all mortals must pass through, saying that, he died when the country is in dire need of professionals in the field of Journalism and other professional fields of endeavours now that the country is faced with economic recession and political instability.

The Governor however, urge the leadership and the entire members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists not to  allow his exit affect their performance but should rather ginger them to contribute constructively and meaningfully in their reportage aimed at building a virile society that promotes peaceful coexistence in the State and country at large.

The release admonished all members of the NUJ particularly the Correspondents Chapel to take solace in the Lord at all times especially in an event of death.

Before his death, Ahmed Wakili was writing for Forefront Magazine.
