“I received with utmost sadness the news of the passing of your beloved mother,Hajiya Utiya Dahiru Chiroma, after a brief illness.
“There is no doubt, whatsoever,that our dear State, Adamawa,and our country,Nigeria, have both lost a woman of outstanding virtues,who in her life time gave the best part of her active years to the service of her family,our communities in the State and to the nation at large.
“We shall all miss her motherly care,the deep knowledge she bore and her constant advice that has always guided you and many of us through the gliding haze of politics and public service.
“For myself and my family,and, indeed, on behalf of the good people of Gombi/ Hong Federal Constituency,whose mandate I currently hold at the National Assembly,I convey to you our deepest condolences on the passing of mama and pray that Allah grant her beautiful soul quiet repose and Aljana firdausi .”
