The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) has Saturday, commiserated with Sen. Kabiru Ibrahim Gaya over the death of his wife, Hajiya Halima Gaya.
The Forum’s Chairman and Governor of Plateau state Simon Lalong, made the commiseration in a condolence message signed by his director of press and public affairs Dr. Makut Macham.
Lalong described the death of Hajiya Halima as shocking and painful, adding that late Halima was a woman who gave her best for the good of the society through investment in education and other philanthropic gestures.
“The Northern Governors Forum sends its deep condolences to you and members of your family for this enormous loss which affects all.
“The late Hajiya Halima committed herself to building the future through the promotion of youth development and women empowerment. She represented the less privileged and promoted their cause at all times,’’ he said.
Lalong further said though her death creates a huge vacuum in the Gaya family and the society, there is solace in the legacies she left behind which will continue to resonate for a long time.
He urged: “Senator Gaya, his immediate family and the people of Kano State to accept her death as ordained by God, praying that Allah (SWT) grants them the fortitude to bear this great loss and reward her good deeds with paradise.”
