President Muhammadu Buhari Monday condoled with the family of development expert and urban planner, Mrs Mariam Ladi Yunusa, whose life and times on earth remain a testimony for the lives she touched, and transformed.
The president also commiserated with friends and associates of the quintessential mother, community developer and advocate of good education for children and youth, saying her investments as a public servant in Nigeria, and contributions to the United Nations would be remembered and appreciated.
He said Mrs Yunusa’s love for humanity, fear of God and courage to provide leadership in her family, work and community separated her for special recognitions and honour.
The president urged her family to find solace in the light and joy she brought to many lives.
He prayed that the almighty God would comfort the family, friends and associates of the departed, and grant her soul eternal rest.
