The former senate President described Madam Saraki as “a kind and compassionate woman who made tremendous contributions to the development of the society”.

He told senator Saraki “Your services and commitment to the ideals of nationhood I believe can be attributed to Mama’s hardwork, care and discipline which she imparted on you to be responsible and patriotic citizen.”

Senator Mark noted that the avalanche of encomium on Madam Saraki since her transition to the great beyond showed that she was a woman of valour who touched others in many positive ways.

The former Senate President therefore urged the Sarakis to uphold and indeed sustain the good attributes of Mama especially her good neighbourliness and philanthropy which endeared her to many whilst she was alive.

Senator Mark prayed that God in His infinite mercy grant the deceased eternal rest just as he prayed that the Almighty gives the immediate family the fortitude to bear the loss.
