Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has described the death of Alhaja Abibatu Mogaji, mother of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who passed away yesterday, as a painful loss which has created a vacuum in the ranks of philanthropic Nigerians.
Tambuwal, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, described the deceased as a committed nationalist who gave all for the unity, progress and development of the nation.
The Speaker said as family members, friends and associates mourn Alhaja Abibat, they should be comforted by the knowledge that the renowned market leader lived a life full of many indelible achievements and notable contributions to development of Lagos State in particular and Nigeria in general.
The Speaker said the deceased “was an uncommon gift to Nigeria. And we will continue to cherish her love and affection”.
While praying to Allah to reward her good deeds with Jannat, Tambuwal prayed to God give the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
