The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, has lost his mother-in-law, Hajiya Asiya Gauyama.

Ganduje’s Chief Press Secretary, Edwin Olofu, announced her demise in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday.

While commiserating with the former Kano governor and his wife, Prof Hafsatu Ganduje, Olofu disclosed that a funeral prayer will be offered in Kano today before her interment in line with Islamic tenet.

The statement read, “It is with deep sorrow and heartfelt sympathy that we announce the passing of Hajiya Asiya Muhammad Gauyama, the beloved mother of Prof Hafsatu Ganduje, the wife of the National Chairman of the APC, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

“Gauyama was a revered matriarch, whose life was characterized by her unwavering commitment to family, community, and faith. Her passing is a profound loss, not only to her immediate family but also to all who knew and loved her. Her funeral prayer will be held today by 2 pm at the residence of Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje located on Miyangu Road Kano state.

“On behalf of the national chairman and the entire APC family, we extend our deepest sympathies to Prof Hafsatu and her family during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they navigate through this period of grief and loss.

“May Almighty Allah grant Hajiya Asiya Muhammad Gauyama eternal rest and provide comfort to her family and loved ones.”


Gauyama’s death came barely 24 after Vice President Kashim Shettima also announced the passing away of his mother-in-law, Maryam Albishir.

The 69-year-old matriarch was also reported to have died in Kano on Sunday evening after a prolonged illness.
