Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong has paid a condolence visit to the family of Late Air Commodore Dan Suleiman, former Military Administrator of Plateau State who died at the age of 80.
Lalong who was accompanied by Deputy Speaker House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Idris Wase visited the residence of the deceased in Abuja where he described the former Military Administrator as a man of character and principle.
He said Late Dan Suleiman was a patriotic and committed Nigerian who apart from serving the nation diligently in the Airforce, committed himself to the return to democratic rule particularly with his participation in NADECO.
The Governor said he enjoyed cordial relationship with the former Military Administrator who gave him valuable counsel particularly at difficult times.
While commiserating with the family, the Governor urged them to take solace in the fact that their father fought for justice and unity of Nigeria, leaving behind a legacy that will endure.
