“The coalition wishes to extend its condolence to His family, The Northern Elders Forum, Baze University, the people of Benue and the country at large. His death has certainly created a huge vacuum in the hierarchy of northern mentorship and patriotism. As he sleeps on, we pray the family gets the fortitude to bear the pains of the loss.”
Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki also penned down a tribute to him.
“I am deeply saddened by the passing away of the Director General of the Northern Elders Forum, Dr. Yima Sen.

He will be sorely missed. I pray the Almighty strengthens his family at this very difficult time”.
