Tiv monarchs commend Buhari for immortalising Tarkaa

The Tiv Area Traditional Council Friday commended President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing Senator George Akume as minister in his cabinet and for immortalising JS Tarkaa by re-naming Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, after him.

The council during a meeting held at the Tor Tiv Palace in Gboko expressed appreciation to the president, describing his actions as “an honour to the entire Tiv nation.”

According to him, it is anticipating that the president would further honour the Tiv with more appointments of her sons and daughters in strategic positions.

The council, presided over by Tor Tiv V, Prof. James Ayatse, also congratulated Senator Akume on his appointment as minister of special duties and intergovernmental affairs and wished him many years of fruitful service to his father land.
