Gov. Tanko Al-makura of Nasarawa State said the death of Hajiya Zainab Dikko, the wife of the state’s Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Dikko, was “a monumental loss” to the family, state and the entire country.
Al-makura’s message was contained in a condolence message, signed by his Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Alhaji Tukur Ahmed in Lafia on Thursday.
The governor said that late Hajiya Dikko was a committed technocrat, patriotic women leader and a detrabalised Nigerian.
According to Al-makura, “the deceased wife of the CJ showed love to her people who live in her domain, irrespective of their tribe, religious inclination and in spite of these, she was a Godly woman.
“Though God has his reason for taking her at this point in time, the people of the state have enjoyed her motherly advice which will be greatly missed.
Al-makura said the people would, however, have consolation that late Dikko left a legacy which would continue to be remembered by prosperity for generations yet to come.
Late Dikko, who died on Wednesday at 49 years, is survived by six children.
