Adamawa State has been thrown into Wednesday mourning as the Mother of the Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri Hajiya Fadimatu transited to great beyond.
In a press release signed DG Media and Communications to the governor Mr Solomon Kumangar said, Hajiya Fatimah Umar Badami aged 68, died at the Federal Medical Centre Yola while undergoing treatment from a protracted illness.
The sexagenarian “is survived by Her Son, the number One Citizen of Adamawa State, His Excellency Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and 4 grandchildren, siblings and close relations.
“Her death at this critical moment creates a huge vacuum not only for the immediate family but, the entire State.
“She was a strong pillar in Her Community, a disciplinarian and devout Muslim.
The Governor has taken the death in His stride but will require the prayers of all citizens for God to grant the mother peaceful repose while granting him the fortitude to bear the great loss,” the DG prayed.
