Buhari consoles VON DG over wife’s loss


President Muhammadu Buhari has sympathised with Director-General Voice of Nigeria(VOA) Osita Okechukwu on the death of his wife of 30 years, Tina at 57.


The President shared in the grief of the Okechukwu family, asking God to console and comfort them.

Losing a dear wife and mother, President Buhari opined, is time of deep travail for any family, particularly one who was so devoted, and a rallying force for the household.

The President, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, lamented the loss of a true Nigerian, who schooled in Kano, Enugu-Agidi in Anambra, her state of origin, Maiduguri and Sango-Otta, Ogun State and was fluent in Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa among other languages.

The Okechukwu family, the President said, should draw succour from God Almighty at a time like this and take comfort in the quality of life the departed lived.
