She appreciated her mother during the final moments and reminded her of the many lives she touched. She thanked Nigerians for the love and offered prayers for the repose of her soul.
“To many, she was an icon, to others, she was an inspiration, to me, she was my mother and all of the above. What I told her just last week stays with me, ‘I am your daughter, and you raised me, you have been in the midst of everything, mummy and that is the strength that is now mine and all of us your children.
“‘It is also the strength of a whole nation; you touched so many lives, and that is a blessing that must not be taken lightly.’”
