The Senate minority leader said this on Wednesday at a valedictory session held in honour of the late Senator Ignatius Longjan.
“Yet again we are losing another good man. The question we always ask is why are we losing the good ones? The wicked people in this country do not die, it is the good ones that go,” Abaribe stated.
Abaribe after describing Longjan as a very good person commiserated with the lawmaker’s wife and children and the people that he represented.
The Statesman also commiserated with the diplomatic community from where Longjan came and Nigerians in general.
Senator Longjan who represented Plateau South, died on February 10 in Abuja.
