The Chairman Northern States Governors’ Forum, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, on Monday said the death of Mrs. Nancy Jonathan-Olei, younger sister to President Goodluck Jonathan was unfortunate and a huge loss to the family.
He also prayed Allah to grant the bereaved family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss in a statement issued in Minna by his Chief Press Secretary, Israel Ebije.
The forum sympathised with the first family and urged President Jonathan to see the death as an act of God.
He said, “Let me condole with President Goodluck Jonathan and his entire family over the death of his younger sister Mrs. Nancy Jonathan-Olei. Death is what we must all prepare for as human beings but whenever it happens like this, it only reminds us that we are mere mortals. It is therefore my prayer that Allah grant her Aljanatu Firdaus.”
Aliyu, who is also Niger State governor, said the only way the family can immortalize her is by ensuring that all what she worked for are preserved, well propagated and constantly reflected upon, adding that her passing should bond the family the more. -TheNation
