Executive Secretary, Nigerian Christians Pilgrims Commission, Rev. Dr. Yakubu Pam has expressed deep sadness over the death of one time Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff and ECOMOG Commander, Lt. General Joshua Dogonyaro.
According to Rev Pam, the death of Gen Dogonyaro was a huge loss not only to his family but the entire Plateau state and Nigeria as a whole.
In a press release signed by his Media aide, Pam Ayuba, the NCPC boss said his death will no doubt affect the peace building process in the land as he was a man of peace.
“I recall how we worked closely with him on issues of peace and he was always available whenever I come to him for counselling.
” He did not pretend about his love for this country having served in various military capacities and even after retirement he was still very active and forthcoming on peace matters.
“Indeed, Plateau state and Nigeria has lost a rare gem. A quintessential personality and a gallant soldier.
” I pray that God grants his immediate family, the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss”.
