Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa has expressed sadness over the sudden death of his Personal Assistant on Power, Mr Jamilu Mohammed Yakubu.
Mr Yakubu died in a car crash along Akwanga-Lafia Road on Tuesday.
A statement issued on Wednesday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Ibrahim Addra, described the incident as unfortunate and a great loss to the people of the state.
Sule described the late Jamilu as a hardworking young man, who dedicated himself to the services of the state.
“He contributed immensely to the actualization of the 330KV Power Station in Akurba and many other rural power projects in the state.
“His death is no doubt a great loss not only to the family but to the state as a whole, considering his invaluable contributions to the development of the state, especially in the power sector,” he said.

He condoled with the deceased aide’s wife, children and the entire family for the great loss while praying God to grant him eternal rest.
