“Though she had trained and practised as a nurse, it was her headship of the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS) that defined her selflessness and commitment to the cause of the vulnerable in our society,” he added.

Atiku Abubakar noted that the deceased lived a fulfilled life and was an exemplary role model not only for young girls and women but also for all patriotic Nigerians.

The former vice president also said Adefarasin’s contribution with the Political Bureau under Gen. Babangida is noted in history, where she will forever be remembered as “a champion of women’s rights”.

He prayed to God to grant her eternal rest and give her family and friends the fortitude to bear the loss.
