Buhari mourns niece, says ‘a rare talent is lost’



President Muhammadu Buhari has described the death of renowned educationist, Hajiya Amina Dauda, as the “loss of a rare talent in the field of education”.

Dauda, a younger sister to his nephew, Mamman Daura, who had been unwell for quite some time, died in Kano where she lived.

The president made his feelings known in a condolence message, on Tuesday, delivered on his behalf, by a delegation made up of Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant, Amb. Lawal Kazaure, Chief of Protocol (SCOP) and Alhaji Musa Haro, Dan’madamin Daura.

Buhari said he was saddened by the death of the educationist, saying that in her death, the nation had “lost one of its rare talents in the field of education”.

He also described her as a veteran school administrator and a popular member of the community.

“She exemplified simplicity and sublimity, reflecting the virtues of a mother,” he added.

The president prayed for the peace of her soul, and urged other family members to bear the loss with fortitude.

One of the sisters of late Amina, Hajiya Hajara Dauda, who received the delegation, thanked the president for the visit.

She also requested that their condolences be conveyed to the President in turn, praying that Allah guide him to end his tenure well in the same way he began.
