The Management of Maryam Abacha American University of Niger, MAAUN, Maradi, has condoled with the Sen. Basheer Mohammed-Lado, the Federal Commissioner, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, over his mother’ death.
Recall that Fatima (Fanta) Garba Mohammed, who was the immediate younger sister of late Head of State, Sani Abacha, had died on Saturday at a Hospital in Abuja at the age of 75.
The condolence message was contained in a statement signed by the President and Founder of the University, Prof. Adamu Abubakar-Gwarzo and made available to newsmen in Kano on Sunday.
He described late Fanta as a great mother and prayed to Allah to forgive all her shortcomings.
Mr Abubakar-Gwarzo also described the death of Hajiya Fanta as a great loss not only to her immediate family but to the people of Kano state in view of the fact that during her life she devoted her time assisting the less privileged in the society.
He prayed to Almighty Allah to grant the deceased Aljannah Firdaus and her family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
The deceased who left behind many children and grandchildren, had since been buried in accordance with the Islamic rites in Kano.
