Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has described the death of Commissioner for Health and Human Services, Dr. Emmanuel Saleh Ikwulono as a devastating blow to his administration.
Ortom in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary on Thursday described Dr Ikwulono as a true professional who built a wonderful working relationship with other members of the State Executive Council in a period of only four months in which he served as Commissioner.
According to him, Dr Ikwulono’s death is not only shocking and painful but has also created a vacuum very difficult to fill.
The Governor said the late Commissioner for Health and Human Services will be deeply missed by the Government and people of the state for his proactive efforts in tackling health challenges confronting Benue people, particularly the fight against COVID-19.
He also prayed that the deceased gets eternal rest and his family the strength to bear the irreparable loss.
