President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the former chairman, governing board of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Maj.-Gen. Jonathan India Garba, over the death of his mother, Mrs. Theresa Kuraiwaol Garba.
Buhari said General Garba is lucky to have been born of “such a great mother and an active church member who became a moral fountain of inspiration to her children.”
“Words cannot adequately describe the importance of a mother in the family. I know how tough it is to come to terms with the reality of losing a mother.
“May God grant you the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss of your dear mother. May God Almighty reward her good deeds with heaven,” the president said, according to a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.
