Gombe State Governor, Alhaji Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has commiserated with his political associate and All Progressives Congress, APC chieftain, Alhaji Abubakar Muazu Hassan over the demise of his Mother, Hajiya Aishatu Muazu who died today in Gombe at the age of 78.
This was contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity), Ismaila Uba Misilli.
In a condolence message, Governor Inuwa Yahaya extolled the virtues of the late Hajiya Aishatu, describing her as an upright mother and family pillar, who lived an exemplary life characterised by devotion to Allah and service to humanity.

The Gombe Governor consoled Alhaji Abubakar Muazu and the entire members of the Muazu Hassan family to keep alive the legacies of good character their late mother left behind.
