Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun has condoled with the government and people of Plateau State on the death of Nigeria’s Former Deputy Senate President, John Wash Pam at the age of 73.
Amosun has also commiserated with the governments and people of Kwara and Kogi States on the death of the first civilian Governor of the then Kwara State, Adamu Attah.
In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Olufunmilayo Wakama, the governor described the death of Pam as painful, “especially coming at a time when his wealth of experience would have been most needed in steering the ship of the nation.”
He also noted that the death of Attah, who was aged 83, is a loss not only to Kwara and Kogi states but also the country as a whole.
“Just like the demise of the former deputy senate president, the death of Attah is also lamentable at a time such as this, adding that “The two elder statesmen contributed their quota to national development; the late Wash Pam as deputy senate president to Senate President, Joseph Wayas (1979 to 1983) and Adamu Attah, as governor in Kwara State, has it was then known (between 1979 and 1983), as well as federal permanent secretary.”
Amosun prayed to God to grant the families and associates of the two statesmen the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss as their souls eternal rest.
