“This mourning period has made me to come to terms with the fact that my husband is no more. I have used this period to reflect on my life, my late husband and the future.  But I know that even though he is not with me physically, he is with me in the spirit.  I give thanks to Allah, who has been my strength”, he said.
She also commended members of her late husband’s family, government and people of Kogi State for their support and encouragement.
“The children have been so supportive; they showed me love. Also, my mum has been there for me. I also want to use this medium to thank the APC women, especially James Faleke’s wife; she has been really supportive and I want all Kogi women to know that all hope is not loss. Everything happens for a reason but God has the final say”, she said.
