Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River State has expressed deep regrets over the death of the pioneer National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Second Republic Governor of Plateau State, Chief Solomon Lar.

Governor Imoke said it was painful the elder statesman whose fatherly counsel and wisdom had severally helped pull the country through during its’ critical challenges, while he was alive is no more.\

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita, the governor described the death of Lar as a huge loss to Nigeria, the PDP and particularly Plateau State.

According to Imoke, “His death has added yet to the depleting list of our great statesmen. His death is not only a huge loss to our party, but to Nigeria and Plateau State as a whole.”

Imoke said “Lar was not only an iconic leader, but he was also a man of peace who used the remainder of his life to propagate the cherished values of love and peace. He was preoccupied with the socio-political and economic development of his people and the country.”

Imoke said although Lar was gone, “his sterling life of simplicity, accommodation and selflessness will ever remain with us as an indelible lesson. We are consoled by the life of service he lived”
