Gov Inuwa Yahaya expresses shock over death of Sarkin Sulken Tangale, Ankamu Tasha

Governor, Inuwa Yahaya, has expressed shock over the passing away of a traditional leader in the state, the Sarkin Sulken Tangale, Malam Ankamu Tasha, who died on Sunday.

The traditional title holder died at the age of 95-years-old after an illness and his burial arrangements are slated for Saturday, 4 December 2021 at ECWA, Church Kalkullum, Billiri Local Government Area (LGA), by 11:00 am.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs Vasty Tasha, children; Mr Jack A Tasha, Mrs Susanna Huseini, Mrs Laraba Jidda, Mrs Babiya Yila Maikano and Barrister Rosaline Tasha.

Yahaya in a condolence message issued by his Director-General on press affairs, Isma’ila Uba Misilli on Tuesday, described the death of the elder statesman as a huge loss to the Tangale community and the state in general.

The Governor said as a retired teacher, the late Baba Tasha contributed immensely to the growth and development of education in the state and had raised and mentored great leaders in the society.

“Baba was a great educationist, philanthropist, bridge builder and respected community leader who spent the greater part of his life promoting peaceful co-existence and impacting positively on the lives of many in Tangale land.

“The late elder statesman was an epitome of fatherhood who raised honourable and respected children in the society, among them, the Senior Special Assistant (Media) to the Governor in the office of the Deputy Governor in the person of Mr Jack A. Tasha,” he said.

The governor extended his condolences to Mr Jack Tasha and his siblings as well as entire members of Tasha’s family, consoling them to take solace in the fact that their patriarch lived an exemplary life and left behind good legacies.

He also prayed to God to grant the deceased eternal rest and give those he left behind the fortitude to bear the great loss.
