Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar says the new traditional ruler of Tiv land, Professor James Ornguga Ayatse, is one of the most qualified traditional rulers of modern times, a unique quality, he says, will tremendously assist the new Tiv monarch in his duties.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday, by his media office, the former Vice President explains that Professor Ayatse’s appointment as the paramount ruler of Tiv land is well deserved.
According to Atiku, who is also the Zege Mule Tiv, the Benue State government and the people of the state have made great decision by the choice of a distinguished academic, scholar and an outstanding administrator as the new Tor Tiv.
Having been a Vice Chancellor twice, Atiku notes that Professor Ayatse has more than enough experience and pedigree to steer the affairs of the Tiv people.
The former Vice President prays to God to grant the new Tor Tiv wisdom and guidance to lead his people to greater heights.
