Northern Governors console Tinubu on mother’s death

Abibat Mogaji, Bola Tinubu's mother

Abibatu Mogaji died on Saturday at 96.

The Northern States Governors Forum, NSGF has commiserated with former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Bola Tinubu, on the death of his mother, Abibatu Mogaji, who passed on Saturday evening at 96.

The Chairman of the forum and Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, described Mrs. Mogaji’s death as a big loss, saying she would be sorely missed by members of her family, the people of Lagos State, and indeed all Nigerians.

The forum described the late Iyaloja of Lagos as a towering business and women’s rights figure who not only brought tremendous change to the business and political landscape of Lagos but of Nigeria and beyond.

“Coming at this time of unprecedented security and socio-economic challenges, when the guidance and advice of all our great leaders like Alhaja Abibatu are needed, her death is a big loss,” the forum said in a condolence message signed by Mr. Aliyu’s spokesperson, Danladi Ndayebo.

The forum, however, urged Nigerians to be comforted by the fact that the great values she left behind would serve as a guiding light not only to the people of Lagos but to the entire nation.

The forum also prayed God to grant eternal rest to the soul of the Tinubu matriarch, and to provide succour for the bereaved family members and the entire people of Lagos State.
