President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sympathy with the family of the late Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello over the demise of their daughter, Aishatu Ahmadu Bello.
Naija News reports that the widow of the late Marafan Sokoto, Ahmad Danbaba died on Friday at the age of 75.

Reacting to the sad report, President Buhari in a statement signed on Friday evening by his Spokesman, Garba Shehu, prayed to Allah to have mercy on the deceased and reward her noble deeds with paradise.
The president described Bello as a woman who “lived a worthy and humble life and was an embodiment of discipline and fine character.”
Buhari said the deceased “was not only prominent on account of her birth into a powerful family, but also for her own decent character that endeared her to so many people.”
“At 75, Aishatu lived a fulfilled life of modesty, discipline and decent character, virtues that should be emulated by her surviving children and other women,” the President added.
Buhari further extended his condolences to the Sokoto State Government, Emirate Council, her son the Magajin Garin Sokoto, Alhaji Danbaba and in-law Ambassador Shehu Malami, Sarki Sudan.
