Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has expressed utter shock at the death of Hajiya Abibatu Asabi Mogaji , the mother of Nigeria's prominent opposition politician and ACN leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In a statement of sympathy to the ACN leader, the former Vice President said the death of a mother was one of the saddest events in the life of children. As a care-giver, protector and character moulder, Atiku said, a mother's place in the lives of her children could not be compared to anything else.
According to him, one of the greatest pride of a mother is to see her children grow up as responsible adults that realized their dreams or aspirations.
He said the late Mogaji's pride was to leave behind children that were determined to make their marks in life.
The Turakin Adamawa added that as a pillar of family love, the late Mogaji's children had a duty to keep her virtues alive and to immortalize her.
The former Vice President noted that the "loss of a mother that made sacrifices to make us happy was an experience words could not adequately describe."
While praying Allah to grant the deceased eternal bliss in aljanna (paradise), the former Vice President urged Asiwaju Tinubu and his siblings to always remain the living symbols of her virtues of love and family unity.
