Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson has described the
wife of Nigeria’s late former Head of State, Mrs. Maryam Abacha as a
courageous, peaceful and loving woman.
Governor Dickson stated this in a congratulatory message to Mrs.
Abacha, who turned 70 on March 4, 2017.
He recalled with satisfaction, the events that led to the eventual
creation of Bayelsa State, which her late husband, General Sani Abacha
presided over, adding that, the government and people of Bayelsa State
will remain eternally grateful to the Abacha family for that singular
act of love and concern for Bayelsans and the Ijaw Nation in general.
The Bayelsa State Chief Executive paid glowing tribute to the
matriarch of the Abacha family, stressing that, her love, support and
wise counsel, were some of the driving forces behind the historic
decisions of the late Military Head of State.
Governor Dickson prayed God to grant her sound health, long life and a
happier future with the rest of the Abacha family.
