President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the Adefarasins on the passing of the matriarch of the family, Mrs Hilda Adefarasin, at the ripe old age of 98.
A statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity) on Monday said that the President recalled that the late Adefarasin’s passion for helping the vulnerable and less privileged which manifested early in her professional life as a Nurse, continued to resonate through her whole existence, using every resource at her disposal to further this worthy cause.
Buhari noted that her roles as an activist and campaigner for the rights of women and their empowerment defined the National Council of Women Societies where she was President, among other positions, making the Council the most potent voice for women’s advocacy in Nigeria today.
The President urged the children, especially the Metropolitan Senior Pastor of House on the Rock, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, to build on the foundation laid by their mother in using their godly platforms to make positive impacts on humanity.
