Hajiya Khadija Musdafa, mother in-law of Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President of Nigeria and presidential candidate of the People’s democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 presidential election is dead.
Hajiya Musdafa, wife of the late Lamido Aliyu Musdafa, passed away in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, Monday evening.
Paul Ibe, Media Adviser to the former vice president quoted Atiku as expressing sadness over the loss.
He, however, said that the former presidential candidate “remembers Hajiya Musdafa for her kindness and compassion, which benefited many including Atiku Abubakar himself.”
“Hajiya was like a mother to me and treated me with love and compassion, especially after I lost my beloved mother. It will be difficult to forget her. I will however take solace in the memory that she lived an impactful life,” he was quoted as saying.
Atiku, on behalf of his family, expressed deepest condolences to the Lamido of Adamawa, HRH Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa and the Musdafa royal family.
The Wazirin Adamawa also condoled with the government and people of Adamawa state.
He prayed that the Almighty Allah will forgive her sins and grant her Aljannah Fiddaus.
“Haiya Khadija Musdafa will be buried tomorrow in Yola, Adamawa State,” Ibe added.
