A statement issued by Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Saturday, said the president felicitated with the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the woman, who was known as ‘Kind Teacher’ in the early part of her professional life.
The statement affirmed that a well-rounded Nigerian, Mama Erogbogbo was born in Kano in 1930, schooled in Lagos, and later taught in Kano, Lagos and Jos, where “she impacted positively on the lives of students who passed through her tutelage, hence the sobriquet, ‘Kind Teacher.’”
President Buhari saluted Mama Erogbogbo, who is mother to Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, and wished her sound mind and good health, even as she is celebrated at 90 by all those whose lives she had touched positively.
