” His death has created a very wide vacuum which is too difficult to fill and we will forever mourn and remember him,” he added.

” He was a rare personality , whose mien was unparalleled, while his outstanding contributions to national development, security, peace and unity of Nigeria would always be remembered.

” This rare ardent love and respect for one’s nation, as ceaselessly exhibited by the late Jarman Gombe, was also unequalled .

” His pedigree for national development,moral training, piety and humility was also extraordinary,” Wamakko, a former Governor of Sokoto State, added.

He therefore condoled his family, government and people of Gombe State over the loss of their illustrious so,who was also an unbridled bridge builder.

Wamakko prayed to the Almighty Allah to grant the deceased eternal rest, as well as give his family, people and Government of Gombe State, the formidable fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
