President Muhammadu Buhari sends heartfelt condolences to the Omoti family on the demise of Hajiya Amina Omoti, the immediate past National President (Amirah) of the Federation of Muslim Women Associations of Nigeria (FOMWAN).
The President also commiserates with the government and people of Edo State, the leadership of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, FOMWAN and the entire Nigerian Muslim Ummah on the passage of the exemplary woman leader and accomplished educationist.
