Abuja -  Dr Mohammed Jumare, a delegate representing elder statesmen in the ongoing National Conference, is dead.

A statement issued by James Akpandem, the Assistant Secretary, Media and Communications, said Jumare died in the early hours of Monday in Abuja.

He said the elder statesman, who hailed from Kaduna State, has since been buried in Zaria.

"The National Conference sitting in Abuja was on Monday hit by another sad news of the death of a delegate, Dr Mohammed Abubakar Jumare, from Kaduna State.

"Dr Jumare, who came to the Conference as an Elder Statesman, died in the early hours of Monday in Abuja and was buried later in the day in Zaria.

"The late Dr Jumare was born on August 20, 1943 in Kwarbai, Zaria City.

"His burial was attended by the Kaduna State Governor, Ramalan Yero and the Emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris," Akpandem said.

The media officer said the late Jumare was the General Manager, Personnel and Administration at Peugeot Automobile Ltd, Kaduna, from 1993 to 1999.

He added that the deceased was also the Chairman, Kaduna State Water Board from 2003 to 2004.

According to Akpandem, Jumare also served as a National Commissioner in charge of Information and Publicity Committee at the National Electoral Commission.

He said the deceased was also the Chairman of the 15-member National Advisory Committee on Delimitation of Constituencies constituted by INEC from 2008 to 2009.
