Another Commissioner, in Taraba State, has died, barely four weeks after the death of the state’s Commissioner for Rural Development, Makus Senlo.
This time, it is Taraba State Commissioner for Poverty Alleviation, Mr Naptali Kefas, who is dead.
His death was confirmed in a statement released by the governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Bala Dan-Abu, on Friday.
He said, “The death of Kefas has robbed the state of the services of a patriotic and hard-working gentleman.
“The late Kefas was a very gentle and compassionate man, the reason why he was posted to the Ministry of Poverty Alleviation to help implement government’s pragmatic programme of giving hope and succour to the poor and the needy.”
