UNTIMELY PASSING OF FORMER DEVELOPMENT BANK OF TUVALU CEO: LATE MR TAUKAVE POOLO

It is with great sadness that Mr Taukave Poolo, Former ADFIP Board Chairman and Former Development Bank of Tuvalu CEO had suddenly passed away on Monday, 30th January 2017 and was laid to rest in Funafuti on Friday, 3rd February, 2017.

Mr Poolo resigned from his ADFIP chairmanship on October 2013 to take up his new appointment as Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Communications and Transport in Tuvalu, the post he held till his demise.

Mr Poolo is survived by his wife Mrs Alisa Taukave and four children.

It is our prayer that the Lord Almighty will comfort Mrs Poolo and the children and grant them divine strength to carry them through in this difficult time.
