Governor Darius Ishaku has advised Tarabans to cultivate and show behaviours that would impact positively on the lives of other people.
The Governor gave the admonition during the funeral service of late Liatu Adamu Rika at the United Methodist Church Nukkai, Jalingo.
He eulogized Liatu Rika as a brave citizen who did all within her power to give her children the best of education and training despite glaring challenges.
The Governor charged the congregation to pray fervently for the state and country amid reckless killings going on without recourse from designated authority.
In his sermon, Reverend Abainatus Akila frowned at the way many people allow earthly pleasures and desires to keep them away from God advising them to change their lifestyle.
He said the deceased Liatu Rika lived a fulfilled life, and left a legacy that will stay fresh in the minds of those that have come across her.
Commenting, Chairman of the Taraba state Independent Electoral Commission Philip Duwe, a stepson of the deceased who spoke on behalf of the family thanked Members of the church and sympathizers who stood by them in their moment of grief.
It would be recalled that late Mama Liatu Rika died on October 5, 2018 along Bali, Garba Chede road in a fatal car crash at the age of eighty one.
Her remains was committed to mother earth at the church Premises.
