Current UJAA President, Pastor Nuhu Sani who commiserated with the family of the deceased and members of the Unijos Alumni Association over the unfortunate loss of Late Dr Bala Ahmed Tafida, expressed regret that his predecessor had departed this mortal world at a time when his services where most needed.
