The Executive Governor of Yobe state, His Excellency, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, has condoled with his Deputy, Hon. Idi Barde Gubana, over the death of his daughter Khadijah.
Late Khadijah died today from injuries sustained in a road traffic accident involving the family of the Deputy Governor last week, which also claimed the life of his son, Seven year old Mai Mala, named after the state Governor.
Governor Buni described the accident as tragic and disastrous with such a heavy loss to the family and state.
“It is very sad loosing such promising souls and all other souls to road accidents, but that was the will of Allah (SWT).
“It is with pain and sorrow, yet with total submission to the will of Allah that we mourn the passage of our beloved children who died at their prime in this accident.
“This is not a loss only to the family of the Deputy Governor, but a loss to the entire state” Governor Buni said.
The Deputy Governor’s family had the accident while travelling to Kano from Damaturu.
Governor Buni prayed to Allah to forgive their shortcomings and for the repose of the souls of all deceased persons in Aljannatur Firdausi.
