The Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, has described the death of two family members of President Muhammadu Buhari, Hajiya Aisha Mamman and Hajiya Halima Dauda, as “shocking and tragic.’’
The governor, who made the remark when he paid a condolence visit to the bereaved family at Daura, on Sunday, prayed for the repose of their soul.
He also called on the family, especially the children of the deceased to remain prayerful and regard the demise of their mothers as an act of God.
He said death is an inevitable end of every mortal, hence, the need to fear God and remained committed to His course.
The governor visited the bereaved family in company of the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr Mustapha Inuwa, Commissioners and other top government officials.
Hajiya Halima Dauda, 56, who died on Saturday, was the President’s niece and younger sister to his close associate and nephew, Mamman Daura, while Hajiya Aisha Mamman, passed on Friday.
Late Hajiya Aisha was the wife of the President’s elder brother, Alhaji Mamman.
