Gov Lalong mourns Ahmed Musa’s mother

25th January, 2019

Plateau State Governor, Rt Hon Simon Bako Lalong has commiserated with the family of Ahmed Musa, Nigerian national football team player, over the death of Musa’s mother, Sarah Moses, who died on 24th January, 2019.

Lalong, in a statement issued in Jos on Friday and signed by Mark Longyen, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, described the death of the deceased as “shocking, sad and hard to come to terms with.”

According to Longyen, the Governor stated this during a condolence visit to the family of Ahmed Musa at the footballer’s residence in Jos.

The statement reads in part:
“It is with deep shock that I received the sad news of the loss of your beloved mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, Sarah Moses, who died on Thursday, 24th January, 2019.

“It is indeed a very sad moment to lose a dearly beloved mother, who, upon the death of her husband about 21 years ago, single-handedly raised a world-class footballer like Ahmed, who has done the state and the nation so much proud.

“Mama’s unfortunate death which has occurred at a time that her motherly counsel is most needed by her bereaved family is hard to come to terms with.

“While we mourn her passing on to glory, I admonish all the entire bereaved family to be consoled in the fact that death is inevitable for all mortals and accept the development in good faith.

“On behalf of my family, the government and good people of Plateau State, I join you in mourning this great loss. May her gentle soul rest in peace with Almighty God.”
