The Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday led a pack of dignitaries that graced the fidau prayer for the repose of the soul of the late Hajia Ayisat Omo Agba Baraje, mother of former National Chairman of the new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje in Ilorin, Kwara state .

The Senate President arrived the Baraje family residence, Baboko, Ilorin, venue of the prayer in company of Kwara and Benue states governors, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed and Samuel Ortom respectively. The Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike later joined them.

Other dignitaries that graced the event included the deputy national chairman of the APC (North), Lawan Shuaib and his South counterpart, Niyi Adebayo, Senators Barnabas Gemade, Sha’aba Lafiagi, Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly, Dr Ali Ahmad, representatives of the Emir of Ilorin, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, members of the Kwankwansiya in the state and former presidential spokesman, Dr Doyin Okupe.

In his sermon at the occasion, the grand Mukadam of Ilorin Emirate, Sheikh Sulaiman Dan Borno, called on believers to be steadfast and do good at all times, saying that whatever one does has its rewards.

The cleric, who, particularly, directed his sermon to women, enjoined them to be of virtue and submissive to their husbands for their children to be responsible and successful in life.

“God bestows successful children to virtuous wives and mothers. Virtuous woman bears responsible children. Every man with good wife is blessed with all blessings of Allah”, he said, adding that Hajia Baraje was a dutiful, responsible and glorious mother as well as wife.

“Women who inflict pain, trouble, lack of rest of mind on their husbands may not attract blessings of Allah. Also, all those people who are not good to children of other people should know that their own children may suffer”, he said.

Sheikh Dan Borno also admonished the people to take good care of their mothers while alive, describing care for mothers as debt that should be paid by every child.

The Imam Imale of Ilorin, Alhaji Abdullahi AbdulHamid, who led the fidau prayer said that life is all about good times and bad times, adding that believers should expect what Allah brings with faith and prepare for eventual end.
