Former political office holders under the administration of late Governor Aliyu Akwe Doma on Tuesday appointed the governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, as their grand patron.
Late Doma governed the state from 2007 to 2011 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP but lost his second term bid in 2011 to Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura on the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change, CPC.
The appointment of Sule as Grand Patron of the former political office holders of late Doma was announced by former Secretary to the Nasarawa State Government, SSG, Timothy Anjide, in Government House, Lafia.
Anjide, who spoke on behalf of the former political office holders, said whereas Governor Sule was also a political appointee of late Doma and being the highest political office holder at the moment, the group therefore appointed him as its Grand Patron.
In a remark, former deputy governor of the state, John Mike Abdul, thanked the governor for granting them the audience for the reunion of the Doma’s associates.
Anjide said, “We received the cheering news of your thoughtful decision to name the recently commissioned banquet hall in Government House as ‘Aliyu Akwe Doma Doma Banquet Hall’ as a gesture of immortalising his name and legacy of service.”
