The Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has expressed sadness over the loss of the state's chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Rodney Nathan.

This was contained in a statement signed and issued by the spokesperson to the governor, Humwashi Wonosikou on Wednesday.

Governor Fintiri described the late Nathan as a successful administrator and educationist while commiserating with his family and associates. 

According the statement, Fintiri said: “Rodney Nathan would be remembered for his exemplary lifestyle. 

"He was a man who demonstrated great commitment to the service of the Union and the new thinking of our administration towards the growth and development of the Education sector as reflected in the various leadership roles he played in the promotion of Cordial working relationship and revamping of Education in Adamawa State."

He also described late Nathan as "A decent and diligent unionist".

He noted that the death was a major loss not only to his (Nathan's) family, the Bwatiye race, the Teachers Union in the North, but also the entire State.

“We shall miss his frankness and wise counsel. He was consistent, principled and decent. 

"Our prayer is that God will grant him eternal rest and grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss," Fintiri added.
