Alhaja Sadiat Abeke Erogbogbo, the mother of the chairman/ chief executive officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, is dead.
It was gathered that the retired teacher and businesswoman died at the age of 90, adding that the deceased would have marked her 91st on June 9.
Reacting to this, President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled Dabiri-Erewa and sent words of comfort to the other children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the departed, who was known as ‘Kind Teacher’ in the early part of her professional life.
Buhari recalled that Alhaja Erogbogbo was a well-rounded Nigerian. She was born in Kano and educated in Lagos.
She later taught in Kano, Lagos and Jos, where she impacted positively on the lives of students who passed through her tutelage, hence the sobriquet, ‘Kind Teacher.’
President Buhari prayed that the soul of Mama Erogbogbo would rest well and that God will comfort all those she left behind.
