President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family, friends and associates of Sen. Franca Afegbua, the first female Senator of Nigeria.

The late Senator was elected under the defunct National Party of Nigeria (NPN), to represent the old Bendel North.

Buhari believed that the historical feat completely altered the perception and position of women, her state and the country, especially with the projection of exemplary leadership traits of empathy and inclusiveness, which earned Afegbua trust and respect.

The president also condoled with the Government and people of Edo, and her community, ”where she had remained an inspiration to young women, lifting many out of hopelessness through mentorship, and creating opportunities for others to realize their dreams in various careers.”

Buhari prayed that the Almighty God would receive the soul of the departed, while urging the family to approximate her good works for posterity. (NAN)
