The Executive Chairman of Kogi State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, Comrade Abdullahi Sulaiman Ndalayi, has commiserated with the member representing Lokoja/Kogi Federal Constituency, Hon. (Barr.) Shaba Ibrahim, over the death of his mother, Hajiya Belkisu Sulaiman, whose death was announced on Saturday.
In a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Lokoja, Ndalayi described the news of Shaba’s mother’s death as “a rude shock and great loss not only to Kogi but Nigeria in general, given her invaluable contributions to the cause of humanity.”
According to the Chairman, Hajiya Belkisu Sulaiman was a quintessential mother, devout Muslim and community leader who devoted her lifetime to the service of Allah and humanity.
”Words are insufficient to condole one on a mother’s death, but I do urge you to take solace in the life that she lived.
”I have no doubt that mama’s impact and reach will continue to be felt through her offspring.
”On behalf, my family and myself, I offer you our deep condolences,” he said.
Ndalayi prayed the Almighty God to grant the lawmaker and the rest of the Shaba’s family the grace to endure the irreparable loss.
