Buhari condoles with Aig-Imoukhuede family over departed matriarch



President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the Aig-Imoukhuede family over the loss of their matriarch, Pastor Emily Okheren Aig-Imoukhuede, aged 79.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President beseeched God’s comfort for the widower, Frank Aig-Imoukhuede, children, grandchildren and the entire family, asking them to take solace in the fact that the departed spent the latter part of her years in a deep commitment to the evangelical ministry aside bringing succour to the vulnerable and underprivileged.


The deceased, Buhari noted, was kind, graceful and caring, offering fervent service to God and humanity as a beacon of hope and inspiration.

He also praised her contributions in the secular realm too, serving variously as Curator of National Museum, President, National Council of Women Societies and Honourable Secretary of State (Federal Minister) for States and Local Governments in 1993.

The President Buhari urged the family to preserve the memory of the departed by keeping aglow the fire she lit for the inspiration of all that knew her.
