President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with elder statesman, Wantaregh Paul Iyorpuu Unongo, over the passing of his wife, Victoria.
President Buhari urged members of the family to find comfort in the many lives she touched, and transformed with love.
The President in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, joined the people and government of Benue State, particularly friends and associates of the Unongos, in mourning Mama Victoria, “who lived for the good of others, supporting her husband in his humanitarian gestures, which include looking after orphans, homeless people, the poor and sick.”
“President Buhari believes Unongo’s wife served her people, the nation and humanity with kind heart, and her investments of making life better and easier for others will always be remembered,” the statement read in part.
The President prayed that God will grant Mama Victoria eternal rest.
