The Governor gave the commitment through his commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Professor Otaki Osana Allanana at the final internment of APC Chieftain and former culture and Tourism Commissioner, Solomon Ihuman.
A former teacher and headmaster in Plateau, Benue, and Nasarawa states, Late Solomon Ihuman, before becoming a Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, was also a five-time permanent secretary in different ministries in Nasarawa State.
Late Ihuman was a unifying figure and rallying point among the minority Tiv population in Nasarawa State.
Apart from his role in the creation of Nasarawa State, his unrelenting support for CPC then the APC, supported the emergence of successive governments in Nasarawa State and has continued to attract recognition and development to his people.
