Buhari mourns as Sani Abacha’s younger sister dies
President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his sadness over the death of Hajiya Fatima (Fanta) Garba Mohammed, the immediate younger sister of late military Head of State General Sani Abacha.
According to a statement signed by Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, President Buhari condoled with the Abacha family on the loss.
Hajia Fanta is the mother of Senator Basheer Mohammed (Lado), Federal Commissioner, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
Buhari also said he sympathises with Lado and his siblings as well as the people of Kano State, noting that Hajia Fanta devoted her time on earth to care for the less privileged while bringing up her children with fear of God.
Aged 75, President Buhari prayed that Allah will console all those who mourn and grant Hajiya Fanta Aljannatul Firdaus.
