Cancer kills Bauchi Governor Yuguda's Sister

Bauchi State Governor Isa Yuguda's younger sister, Hafsat Yuguda Ibrahim, lost her long battle with cancer and passed away at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital, Bauchi.
Director General of the Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF), Mr. Asishana Okauru, has issued a condolence message to the Yuguda family.

The message reads, in part: "We hereby condole with  Governor Isa Yuguda, the government and people of Bauchi State and the entire Yuguda family over the death of Hajiya Hafsat Yuguda Ibrahim, the immediate younger sister of Governor Yuguda, who died of cancer on Wednesday.

"It is unfortunate that Mrs. Ibrahim passed on at a time our country needed her invaluable service most. Her loss is no doubt a monumental loss to our nation.
"Mrs. Ibrahim's departure is deeply painful and devastating. But we take solace in the fact that she lived and died well. She dedicated her life to raising her children and serving her people and country. We believe she will long be remembered for the services she rendered to her community.
"We commiserate with her family, friends and associates, the people and government of Bauchi and pray almighty Allah to give us all the fortitude to bear this great loss."
Hajiya Ummi Hafsatu Ibrahim Biri Kunah, aged 46, was the last born in the Yuguda's family. She is survived by her husband, Alhaji Ibrahim Biri Kunah, and four children, Hashimu, Atiku, Sabiru, and Rukayyatu Ibrahim.
The deceased has since been buried in accordance with Islamic rites.
