The first democratically elected governor of Adamawa, Saleh Michika, who has been in a coma has died. Family sources say Michika passed away Saturday night at the Federal Medical Centre, Yola, after a protracted illness.
Born in 1941, Michika was Adamawa governor from Jan.2, 1992 to Nov.17, 1993, following the creation of Adamawa out of the defunct Gongola state by the then National RepublicanConvention (NRC).
He will be laid to rest by 2 p.m today in his hometown, Michika.
May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
