The news came as a great shock to us in particular, and the entire nation as a whole. Indeed, it is not quite long when our office had the opportunity to celebrate with our late mother on her last birthday at her residence in Walewale.
It was a very lovely day, filled with joy as we had so much fun with her. How we wish many of such days will come again!
We know it is a great loss to you and the entire family as a whole your Excellency but as a committed Muslim, we humbly wish to refer you to the the Quranic verse “Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un” which is translated as “We surely belong to Allah and to Him we shall return”.
We are with you in prayers in this trying times and may the Almighty Allah console u.
Your Excellency, Hajia Mariama Bawumia was a mother to all. She was a mother to the motherless and will usually attend to whoever called on her. Not only was she a great person to her immediate family, she was an excellent mother with whom we spent memorable days with over the years. She had amazing homour and was a gifted storyteller.
She was God fearing, pious, prayerful, ready to share what she had with the poor and needy, honest and straightforward. With all these, we are of the believe that our late mother soul will be accepted by Allah with mercy and forgiveness. We pray that Allah almighty grant her jannatu Firdaws.
