Adamawa Governor Ahmadu Fintiri Loses Mother

Hajia Fatimah Umar Badami, the mother of Adamawa Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, has passed on. She was 68.

Hajiya Fatimah Badami died Wednesday at the Federal Medical Centre, Yola, after a protracted illness, according to a statement from the Adamawa State Government.

The statement by the Director General of Media and Communication, Government House, Mr Solomon Kumangar, said deceased is survived by Governor Fintiri, four grandchildren, siblings and other relations.
