Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong has commiserated with Sen. Kabiru Ibrahim Gaya over the death of his wife, Hajiya Halima Gaya.

In a condolence message to Senator Gaya, Governor Lalong described the death of Hajiya Halima as shocking and painful, describing her as a woman who gave her best for the good of the society through investment in education and other philanthropic gestures.

Governor Lalong said “The Northern Governors Forum sends its deep condolences to you and members of your family for this enormous loss which affects all.

"The late Hajiya Halima committed herself to building the future through the promotion of youth development and women empowerment. She represented the less privileged and promoted their cause at all times’’.

Lalong said though her death creates a huge vacuum in the Gaya family and the society, there is solace in the legacies she left behind which will continue to resonate for a long time.

He urged Senator Gaya, his immediate family and the people of Kano State to accept her death as ordained by God, praying that Allah (SWT) grants them the fortitude to bear this great loss and reward her good deeds with paradise.

Gaya was a former Governor of Kano State.
