Kano State governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has described the death of Hajiya Maryam, Mai Babban Dakin Kano, and wife of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero as an act of Allah which every mortal will test, saying, however, her good deeds will remain in the minds of the people of Kano.
Hajiya Maryam, is a mother to the Emir of Kano, Alh. Aminu Ado Bayero and also mother to Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero respectively.
He expressed his deepest condolences on behalf of the government and people of Kano State to her dearest sons, the Emirs of Kano and Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, and Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero respectively.
According to a commiseration message issued by the commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, a copy made available on Saturday to pressmen in Kano, the governor, who further described the deceased as a highly disciplined and honest mother who trained her children on the path of Allah.
Ganduje then comforted the Emirs to take solace in the fact that their mother lived a good life, devoted to serving Allah and humanity.
He, however, added that her death at this time had created a vacuum difficult to be filled especially for her two sons who need most of her motherly guidance and counsel.
The governor prayed to Allah, the Almighty to grant the soul of the late princess Aljannah Firdausi and the fortitude for the family, the entire people of the two Emirates to bear the unbearable loss.
It will be recalled that Hajiya Maryam passed on early Saturday in Cairo Egypt after a protracted illness.
