The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has commiserated with former Governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu over the loss of his mother, Alhaja Abibat Mogaji. In a statement signed by Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh described her as worthy of emulation in so many ways.
“She remained a shining example of a mother and a leader whose inner strength, candour and forthrightness served as fountains of tutelage and inspiration to millions across the country”, he said adding that as President General of Lagos Market Men and Women Association, she showed extra-ordinary organisational skills and influence in the area of politics and commerce not only in Lagos but across the country.
“Her contribution in defining the rights of the people, especially the less privileged and the down-trodden and ensuring their economic empowerment irrespective of tribal and religious affiliations remain as testimonials to her kindness and selfless service to humanity”, he said.
The party said Mogaji led a fulfilled life and has gone to be with the Almighty and prayed God to give all the fortitude to bear the loss.
