President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over death of Aishatu Ahmadu Bello, second daughter of late Premier of defunct Northern Region, Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto.
Reacting to the demise of Aishatu on Friday, Buhari, in a statement signed by his Spokesman, Garba Shehu, said that “the deceased lived a worthy and humble life and was an embodiment of discipline and fine character.”
According to the President, Aishatu, who is the mother of Magajin Garin Sokoto, Alhaji Hassan Danbaba, “was not only prominent on account of her birth into a powerful family, but also for her own decent character that endeared her to so many people.”
“At 75, Aishatu lived a fulfilled life of modesty, discipline and decent character, virtues that should be emulated by her surviving children and other women,” the President added.
Presiden Buhari extended his condolences to the Sokoto State Government, Emirate Council, her son the Magajin Garin Sokoto, Alhaji Danbaba and in-law Ambassador Shehu Malami, Sarki Sudan.
He prayed to Allah to forgive the gentle soul of the deceased and reward her noble deeds with paradise.
