President Muhammadu Buhari has called the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Usman, from London over the death of his mother, which occurred at the weekend.
A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said Buhari condoled with the traditional ruler, urging him to take solace in the fact that Hajia Aminatu Mai Babban Daki lived a good life, devoted to serving Allah and humanity.
“Please be comforted. May Allah accept her soul,” Adesina quoted Buhari as saying.
The deceased was survived by nine children, and has been buried according to Muslim rites.
