Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has described death of Hajiya Maryam, Mai Babban Dakin Kano and wife of the late Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero as an act of Allah which every mortal will test.
The governor, in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Kano State, Muhammad Garba on Saturday and obtained by PlatinumPost, said the deceased’s good deeds would remain in the minds of the people.
He expressed his deepest condolences on behalf of the government and people of Kano state to the Emirs of Kano and Bichi, Aminu Bayero and Nasiru Bayero, who are both sons of late Maryam.
The governor, who further described the deceased as a highly disciplined and honest mother who trained her children on the path of Allah, comforted the monarchs to take solace in the fact that their mother lived a good life, devoted to serving Allah and humanity.
Ganduje said her death at this time had created a vacuum difficult to be filled especially for her two sons who need most her motherly guidance and counsel.
“The governor prayed Allah the Almighty to grant the soul of the late princess Aljannah Firdausi and the fortitude for the family, the entire people of the two Emirates to bear the unbearable loss,” the statement added.
