 Senator Mark noted that the Tor Tiv stood for the people  who relied on him for counselling and direction especially at critical times.

 He   noted the immeasurable contributions of the late Tor Tiv to the peace, unity and development of Benue state  and beyond saying that the foremost monarch left a vacuum that would be hard to fill.
 Senator Mark recalled how the late Tor Tiv brought colour, glamour and integrity to the traditional  institution to the admiration and pride of all citizens of Benue state.

 According to the former Senate  president who is also an indigene of Benue state:" the Tor Tiv Was a respected traditional ruler who stood for the truth, hard work, commitment and upheld the sanctity of fairness, justice and equity.

 " We shall miss his wise counsel. We shall miss his candour . We shall miss his frank and honest disposition especially on issues that affected the welfare and wellbeing of citizens."
