Kogi State Commissioner for Solid Minerals and Natural Resources, Engr Abubakar Bashir Muhammad has sent his condolence message to the speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly, Prince Matthew Kolawole over the death of his wife.
He stated this in a message he made available to the public shortly after the news reached him.
The Commissioner who said the entire state and the country is affected by the death said the world has lost a woman of compassion, dedication, and humility.
Engr Bashir Muhammed who is popularly called ‘Bashir Gegu’ noted that though death is something no one could escape, said the death of the speaker’s wife is a bitter pill too difficult to swallow.
He, therefore, enjoined Prince Kolawole to be strong and take solace in the fact that God gives and takes at will and that no one could question the will of the Almighty, saying he and the loved ones left behind should be consoled in the fact that his late wife was a woman of valor.
“Though very quiet as all of us would testify to, she was an assuming, respectful, kind-hearted, and loveable individual. We met in many functions where she was always full of smiles and convivial in all interactions.
“I can’t tell you I know how our amiable Assembly Speaker feels at the moment, but I understand what it feels like to lose someone so dear to you. We all saw the affinity, the love, and passion they have for each other in all their public functions when she was alive. I pray Almighty God gives the speaker and the entire family fortitude.”
