Gov Fintiri mourns fallen Adamawa NUT chair, Rodney Nathan

Adamawa State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has commiserated with the leadership of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) over the passing of the Adamawa State Chairman of the Union, Comrade Rodney Nathan, on Tuesday in Jos after an illness.

Nathan, Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, was also the regional leader of the 19 Northern States and Vice Chairman of the State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, until his death.

While also commiserating with the family and associates of late Comrade Rodney Nathan, Governor Fintiri described the late Chairman as a successful administrator and educationist, who got to the top by dint of hard work.

“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,” the governor said.

A statement by Humwashi Wonosikou Fintiri’s press secretary said, the Governor described the late NUT Chair as a decent and diligent unionist, saying his death was a major loss not only to his 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 said.
