He stated that the sudden death was both a huge shock and a big loss to the entire Senate and urged the Senator and his entire family to take solace in the exemplary character of the deceased while she was alive.
“For the short time which our colleague has spent in the Senate, we feel his leadership roles and know that this is a big shock to him and the Senate at large. We all desire that she be alive even now to continue to play her supportive and motherly role in this family, but we cannot question God for calling her home because He alone knows and owns all things.
“However her life of exemplary service to this family in particular and humanity in general will remain indelible in our hearts and I want this to be your consolation”, Saraki said.
The Senate President prayed God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest and the bereaved Senator and his entire family the grace to bear the painful loss.
