immense sadness, news of the passing away of Chief
(Mrs.) Hannah Dideolu Awolowo.
On behalf of the Federal Government and people of
Nigeria, President Buhari extends sincere
commiserations to the children, grand children and
great grand children of the “Jewel of Inestimable
Value” on the death of their famed matriarch, just a
few weeks before her hundredth birthday.
The President joins them and millions of admirers of
her late, revered husband, Chief Obafemi Awolowo in
mourning Chief (Mrs.) Awolowo who will be long
remembered and celebrated as the famous spouse and
pillar of strength of the late nationalist, political leader
and sage.

always be honoured too for the indelible legacy of very
significant, behind-the-scene contributions to
communal, state, regional and national development
which she has left behind.
The President prays that God will comfort Chief (Mrs.)
Awolowo’s family, relatives, friends, associates and
admirers, and grant them the fortitude to bear her
irreparable loss.
He also prays that the Almighty will receive the late
matriarch’s worthy soul and grant her eternal rest from
her long, earthly service to her renowned spouse,
family, community and country.
