Buhari mourns Adanma widow of late Eastern Premier, M.I. Okpara

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with family of the late Dr. Michael Okpara, Premier of Eastern Nigeria during the First Republic, on the passing of his widow, Lady Adanma Okpara.

The President joined the government and people of Abia State and all Nigerians in mourning the passing of an enterprising and disciplined mother, who was a worthy example of humility and hardwork to her children and the many women she mentored in her community, said a presidency statement on Monday.

“As a recipient of several awards and honours from faith-based and humanitarian organisations, President Buhari affirms that the late wife of the very formidable figure in the First Republic and the Eastern Nigeria, led by example even after leaving public office.

“The President’s prayers and thoughts are with the family members, friends and members of the Knight of John Wesley (KJW) in the Methodist Church Nigeria, who will greatly miss her warmth, grace and depth of wisdom.

“President Buhari prays God Almighty to grant the soul of the departed eternal rest”, said the statement signed by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina.
