The wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has described the late Awolowo’s wife, Hanna Idowu as “a remarkable mother, wife and a fountain of inspiration.”

Buhari, who was paying a tribute to the late Mrs. Awolowo in the course of a visit to the deceased’s grand daughter, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, the wife of the Vice President, said it was “impossible to recall Chief Awolowo’s impressive political record and contributions to our democratic development without recognising the significant role the late Hanna Idowu played in his successes in life.”

At 100, the wife of the President said the late Mrs. Awolowo had lived a fulfilled life and left indelible footprints on the sands of time.

She extended her condolences to the family, the government and people of Ogun State over the death of “an extraordinary woman that deserves extraordinary accolades.”
