The President affirmed that “Alhaji Doma, who also served as a Deputy Governor in the old Plateau State, worked assiduously for the country as a member of the Presidential Joint National Consultative and Advisory Committee of Traditional Rulers and Leaders of Thought (1995–1998) and the National Committee on the Future of Higher Education in Nigeria (1996–1998), amongst others.”

The statement added, “As the elected governor of the state, 2007-2011, the President commends the sacrifices of Alhaji Doma in promoting peaceful co-existence, infrastructural development in the state, particularly his zeal to improve the standard of education.

“President Buhari prays that the almighty God will grant the departed soul eternal rest, and comfort members of his family.”
