Maryam Babangida - Former 1st Lady of Nigeria

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

  1. So she died? I mean really dead, no kidding? God is certainly great Alakhbar…
    Well, May the good Lord forgive us all for we are all sinners.
    now that she is gone beyond, plaese leave her alone.
