President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, over the death of his mother, Hajiya Fatima Adamu-Gamawa.
The president’s condolence message was conveyed in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Sunday.
The president said: “I am sad to know about the demise of Hajiya Fatima.
“My condolences to the family, the government and people of Bauchi State. May her soul rest in peace.”
The 106-year-old mother of the minister, fondly called “Baba”, was laid to rest in Katagum last Friday.
A descendant of the family of Wakilin Makaman Katagum, Hajiya Fatima was married to the late Katukan Katagum, Adamu’s father.
