Mr Alia, in the statement, said the late MILAD was dedicated and contributed greatly to the development of Benue, especially through the promotion of functional literacy for women in the state.

The governor noted that the functional literacy programme helped in the improvement of health and economic development of the state.

Mr Alia said the history of Benue State would be incomplete without the contributions of the late military administrator.

He prayed to God to grant his immediate family members, friends, the people of Benue and Ondo states and Nigeria, the fortitude to bear the great loss.

He also prayed to God to grant the late MiLAD eternal rest.
