Maryam Babangida sadly passed away on the 27th December 09. She died of Ovarian Cancer and her husband Ibrahim Babangida (Ex President of Nigeria) was by her side in City Hope Hospital, California.
Tribute – Rest Peacefully, Maryam Babangida
Rest in Peace – Maryam Babangida
The former first Lady of Nigeria.
Not many people in life reach the age of 61
Your life should be celebrated, though you’ve gone.
Lots of negative Nigerian comments, recently I’ve read
My response to them all is “don’t speak evil of the dead!”
Ibrahim Babangida might have made the Nation Grim
As his wife, her duty was not to stand against Him.
Let’s look at the positives she has accomplished
Apart from empowering women, she was an Activist.
Including setting up Maryam Babangida National Centre.
Maryam was one of the Great women we had in Africa.
RIP – Maryam
