Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has expressed his deepest condolences to the Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri over the loss of his mother, Hajiya Fatimah Umaru.

He counselled the Adamawa Governor to take solace in the fact that his mother lived a fruitful and rewarding life as a community leader and devout Muslim.
“Hajiya Fatimah Umaru was an exemplary disciplinarian. The way she brought you up is manifesting in your public service disposition. You are the legacy that she has left behind”, Atiku said.
The former Vice President prays that Allah will forgive her sins and grant her Aljannah Firdaus.
