Taraba State Governor, His Excellency Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku has expressed shock at the news of the sudden and untimely death of Rev. Peter Gambo, chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress in Taraba State.

This was contained in a press release signed by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, BALA DAN ABU.

The news of the death of Rev. Gambo is particularly devastating to the administration of His Excellency because the late trade unionist played a vital role in making labour in Taraba State a strategic partner of Government in the development of the state. He was one labour leader who administered the union with the fear of God and a genuine determination to significantly improve the welfare of workers.

Gov. Ishaku recalled the late Gambo’s mature and skillful approach to labour issues which resulted in the robust and productive relationship between government and the labour unions in Taraba State.

He urged workers in the state and the family of the late labour leader to take solace in the fact that Gambo served the entire Nigerian labour family meritoriously and left an unblemished legacy of loyalty and honesty.
