thing though,it says she died at 95,but it was only 2 years ago they said she was 90 years old.
And President Buhari is currently mourning her.
Hajiya Koko waited nine hours in Kebbi early last year to donate the sum of N1 million (One million Naira) to him as the then presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, saying she admired his honesty, discipline, and stand for truth.
Receiving the news of her passage, President Buhari commended Hayiya Koko’s conviction and
sacrificial giving, urging Nigerians to learn vital lessons from her life. Mr. Buhari described her as “a woman with a good heart, who stood by her convictions, and gave sacrificially.”
“She gave practically all she had towards our campaign. Though well advanced in age, she still believed a new Nigeria was possible, and followed her conviction with action. What generosity of spirit and what tenacious faith in her motherland. Nigerians, old and young, have a lot to learn from her,” the President said.
“The onus is now on all of us to ensure that the change gets entrenched and solidified for even generations yet unborn to benefit from,” Mr. Buhari said.
PremiumTimes reports that the president also sympathized with the governor and people of Kebbi State, whom he said would also miss the sterling qualities of Hajiya Koko, but added that the life of the departed “will serve as a standard to emulate in the service of God, humanity and country.”
“May Allah grant her soul repose in Al-jannah,” the President prayed.
