Sambo Supports Creation Of Gurara State Out Of Kaduna

The Nigerian Vice President, Namadi Sambo, has supported the agitation for the creation of Gurara State out of the present Kaduna State.

At the funeral service of a former Minister of Works and Housing, Senator Isaiah Balat, on Wednesday, Vice President Sambo also said that the Gurara Dam project, located in the southern part of Kaduna State, would soon be completed and commissioned for power generation and irrigation farming in the area.     

It was another moment of sober reflection for the people of southern Kaduna, as friends and political associates of the late Balat gathered at his country home to bid him farewell, having lost another illustrious son of the soil, the late governor Patrick Yakowa to the cold hands of death over a year ago.

In his sermon, the officiating priest, Revd Barje Maigadi, admonished politicians to emulate the life of the late Balat which he said centred on humility, peace and love.

Led by the chief mourner and governor of Kaduna State, Muktar Yero, other dignitaries paid glowing tributes to the deceased.

The late Isaiah Balat was until his death a Special Adviser on Special Duties in the presidency.

The funeral service was attended by ministers, National Assembly members, some state governors and well-wishers.
