Lt. General Joshua Dogonyaro’s Death, A Huge Loss To Nigeria – NCPC
The death of Lt. General Joshua Dogonyaro, a one time Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff and ECOMOG Commander, has been described as a great loss not only to the people of Plateau state but Nigeria as a whole.
The Executive Secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission Rev. Dr. Yakubu Pam has expressed this in his grief over the death of the late icon.
This was contained in a press release signed by his Media aide, Pam Ayuba where the NCPC boss described his death as going to affect the peace building process in the land as he was a man of peace.
According to Rev Pam, the death of Gen Dogonyaro was a huge loss not only to his family but the entire Plateau state and Nigeria as a whole.
“I recall how we have worked closely with him on issues of peace and he was always available whenever I come to him for counselling.
” He did not pretend about his love for this country having served in various military capacities and even after retirement he was still very active and forthcoming on peace matters.
“Indeed, Plateau state and Nigeria has lost a rear gem. A quintessential personality and a gallant soldier.
” I pray may God grant his immediate family, the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
