The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is heartbroken over the death of its former Zonal Chairman, North East and paramount Ruler of Mbamnga Chiefdom in Taraba State, HRH. Amb. Emmanuel Quiltomi Njiwah, OON, describing the death as a monumental loss to the nation.
Ambassador Njiwah was a very patriotic leader, teacher, seasoned diplomat, highly resourceful administrator and a highly loved statesman, who spared nothing in his sacrificial contribution towards the unity and development of our dear nation.
As a member of our party’s National Working Committee before his destined elevation to the exalted stool of the highly revered Mbonduah of Mbamnga Chiefdom, Amb. Njiwah, was a stabilizing force, who made outstanding contributions for the stability, growth and success of our great party in his home state, Taraba, the Northeast zone as well as at the national level.
Amb. Njiwah distinguished himself in service of our dear fatherland, as local government administrator as well as commissioner for rural development and cooperatives in the old Gongola state, Secretary to the Taraba State Government and in many more assignments where he made innumerable sacrifices in service as a true patriot.
As a traditional ruler, Amb. Njiwah demonstrated an exceptional love in leading his people and reinforced our party’s belief in our national pride as embodied in our traditional institution.
Our party deeply commiserates with the Njiwah family, Governor Darius Ishaku, the PDP fold in Taraba state and the North East Zone as well as the government and good people of Taraba state, as we pray God to give us the fortitude to bear this painful loss.
Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary.
