Abike Dabiri-Erewa

Sadiat Erogbogbo mother of the chairman/chief executive officer, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission Abike Dabiri-Erewa has died aged 90.

President Muhammadu Buhari in a statement issued by his spokesman Femi Adesina on Monday condoled with Mrs Dabiri-Erewa on the loss of her mother.

Buhari equally sent words of comfort to the other children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of the departed teacher and businesswoman, who was known as ‘kind teacher’ during her professional life.

He recalled that Mrs Erogbogbo was a well-rounded Nigerian, born in Kano, schooled in Lagos, and later taught in Kano, Lagos and Jos.

The president noted that late Erogbogbo impacted positively on the lives of students who passed through her tutelage, hence the sobriquet, ‘kind teacher.’

He prayed for the repose of the deceased, and that God would comfort all those she left behind.
