The late Tofa, Suleiman said, was a passionate believer of the organic links between generations who was always available for young people.

“The North certanly lost a great statesman, but the youth lost a mentor, a guardian, a living history and an embodiment of all the exemplary qualities young Northerners should strive to achieve.
