Alhaja Sadiat Abeke Erogbogbo, the mother of Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, (NIDCOM) Abike Dabiri-Erewa is dead.
The retired teacher and businesswoman died yesterday, Monday, February 1, 2021.
She was aged 90.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari, in a statement by his
spokesman, Garba Shehu, condoled with the NIDCOM boss.
He also sends words of comfort to other children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of the departed, who was known as ‘Kind Teacher’ in the early part of her professional life.
According to him, Mrs Erogbogbo was a well-rounded Nigerian. She was born in Kano and educated in Lagos. She later taught in Kano, Lagos and Jos, where she impacted positively on the lives of students who passed through her tutelage, hence the sobriquet, ‘Kind Teacher.’
President Buhari prayed that the soul of Mama Erogbogbo will rest well, and that God will comfort all those she left behind.
