The Bishop of Sokoto Catholic dioceses, Dr Mattew Hassan Kukah, on Friday, lost his mother, Mrs. Janet Hauwa Kukah, in Kaduna. She was aged about 86.
This was as President Muhammadu Buhari sent a message of sympathy to both Bishop Kukah and family of Mrs. Kukah, who died today, July 10, in her home in Kaduna.
Samuel Kukah, brother to Bishop Kukah, who spoke on behalf of the family had said: “Mama lived a blessed life and was extremely dedicated to a peaceful living.
“Mama was a loving mother who treated us with love and empathy. She was a lover of peace and lived peacefully with all and sundry. Her death has definitely created a vacuum.”
Mrs. Kukah was described as a dedicated member of the Christian Mothers Association.
She was born in 1934 at Katul village in present day Ikulu chiefdom of Zango kataf local government area of Kaduna State.
In a condolence message, President Buhari expressed sympathy to the Bishop and to members of the family of Kukah, even as he prayed to God to grant the soul of the departed one eternal rest.
