Maryam Babangida Dies At 61

alt

Former first lady and chairperson of Better Life for Rural Women, Maryam Bagangida, has died after a prolonged battle with an illness believed to be cancer (Ovarian) at the age of 61.

Mrs. Maryam Babangida was born in November, 1948. She had fairly humble beginnings in her hometown of Asaba where she received part of her early education before moving up north to Queen Amina's College Kaduna for her Secondary education. She went on to graduate as a Secretary at the Federal Training Centre, Kaduna and later obtained a diploma in secretaryship from Laselle University, Chicago, USA as well as a Certificate in Computer Science from the NCR Institute in Lagos.

On September 6th,1969, two months before her 21st Birthday, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (then a Major), took time off the war front to marry her. Their marriage has been blessed with four children: 2 boys, Mohammed and Aminu and two girls, Aisha and Halima.

Apart from a brief stop at a career in her line of training, before and shortly after marriage, Mrs. Babangida remained a full time housewife, establishing and nurturing the home front until the youngest had fairly come of age.

Alas, the wheels of the Gods grinds slowly but surely. Will we ever learn from history? That our time here is but a speck in the span of cosmic time? She had played her part and has departed the stage.
Where is all the Gold, Learjet aircraft, trips to Monaco, Billion dollars in the Bank?
Compare: our enduring memories of Gani, Fela, Awo, Zik, Margaret Ekpo..(Legends who stood up to be counted, who had the interest of others FIRST before theirs). Versus; Kamuzu Banda, Idi Amin, Alhaji Sani, Mobutu.. How will we all be remembered when we are gone?...it's coming...closer....IBB..it's coming and how will we remember you?......

May her soul rest in pieces! May she rot in the hottest part of hell. May the spirits of the departed women who she conned torment her in the life beyond beyond. AMEN.

May her soul rest in peace. We may never know the many other bad things she prevailed on her husband not to do for the sake of humanity. One thing for sure is that better life for women was to her credit and she prevailed on IBB to step aside. Let Turai borrow a leaf and prevail on Illegitimate Yardua to step aside for the sake nigeria.

Abacha pissed on us all, we did nothing until 2 or 3 prostitutes plus potent viagra rescued us. OBJ did his own and we have written tons without lifting a finger. Turai, Ibori and co are pissing right now and all we do is moan, and then wait for providence.


Honour where it is due: Abacha was actively dispatched; the Indians were the vehicle. The relevant forces in the Nigerian story are able to accomplish when they want to.

Rest in peace o'jare, Maryam


This is, of course, meaningless nonsense.

A debt that cannot be negotiated when it's time..how and when is only known to a few, and not to most....may her soul rest in peace.

About time we get off our high chair and do our bit...no matter how small to effect change. You dont have to be on ground...u can network with like minds.

Something's got to give soonest, we cannot continue to go round in circles....we've gone round long enough.
