The Northern State Governors Forum has sympathised with the family of former President Shehu Shagari over the death of his Widow, Hajiya Hadiza Shehu Shagari who died in Abuja on Thursday 12th August 2021.
In a statement, Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State Simon Bako Lalong expressed deep sadness over the demise of the former First Lady who he said played a great role in the successes of her late husband and advanced the cause of women and children.
According to Governor Lalong, late Hajiya Hadiza Shagari “was a humble woman who devoted significant attention to moral upbringing of not only her biological children and others she mentored, but also supported and promoted activities aimed at improving the nutrition, health and rights of women at all levels.”
While praying God to grant her soul eternal rest, Gov Lalong in a statement by his spokesman Simon Macham also expressed the condolences of the Northern Governors to Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal and the entire people of the state.
