Lalong Mourns Nigeria’s ambassador to Qatar, Dr. Bawa

Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state has condoled with President Muhammadu Buhari over the demise of  the Extra Ordinary and Plenipotentiary Nigeria’s Ambassador to Qatar, Dr. Abdullahi Haruna Bawa Wase.

It would be recalled that Bawa’s death was announced in a statement issued by the spokesman, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tope Elias-Fatile in Abuja on Saturday.

The statement said that Wase, a non-career ambassador from Plateau State, had been sick for a while until his death on Friday night.

In a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Yakubu Datti, the Governor described the deceased as an illustrious son of Plateau state who passed on at a crucial time when his peace advocacy is needed most.

Lalong further commiserated with the people of the state, Wase Emirate Council, the diplomatic community and the immediate family of the deceased.

Dr Haruna Abdullahi Bawa Wase before his demise was appointed in 2016 by President Muhammadu Buhari as a non-career Ambassador.
