who respected agreement, written or oral.

The DG added that Akala was a generous, philanthropic and kind person who gave cheerfully to people regardless of reference to political platforms, religions and tribes among other dichotomies.
He said the deceased remained the people’s Governor, because if anyone cries to his office, such individual would definitely smile out.

He prayed God to forgive his shortcomings, repose his soul and give family the fortitude to bear the huge loss.
