Buhari condoles with Muiz Banire over mother’s death
President Muhammadu Buhari has sympathized with former National Legal Adviser of All Progressives Congress, Dr Muiz Banire, SAN, on the loss of his mum, Alhaja Sarat Banire.
TNG reports that Banire’s mum passed on on Friday night at the age of 92.
The President noted that no matter how old mothers are, their departure is always keenly felt, as he urged Banire, Chairman, Assets Management Corporation (AMCON) to take heart, and be comforted in the fact that the departed lived to a ripe old age, and left behind worthy sons and daughters, who are accomplished in different areas of endeavour.
President Buhari prayed God to comfort the entire Banire family, and charged them to keep the memory of their matriarch evergreen by building on the good works she was known for.
A statement released by the Banire family on Saturday says the remains of Alhaja Banire will be interred at the Ebony Vault, Alagbon close, Ikoyi, Lagos at 2pm, today according to Islamic rites.
The late matriarch of the Banire family is survived by relations and children including the AMCON Chairman, Dr Muiz Banire who was also a former National Legal Adviser of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC; Alhaja Raimot Ajoke Banire, Mr Ajibola Banire, Dr Rasheed Oki and Mr. Ayoola Oke.
