During her condolence visit to the Awolowos, she described the late H.I.D Awolowo as the pillar of support during the days of the Western region administration, saying she was a type of woman who should be emulated by the womenfolk.
Mrs Buhari was accompanied on the visit by the the wife of the Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo, wife of the former Governor of Rivers State, Judith Amaechi and the former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Mrs Pauline Tallen.
She was welcomed by members of the Awolowo family, led by the eldest daughter, Mrs Omotola Oyediran.
Meanwhile, President Buhari had earlier expressed his condolence to the Awolowo family, believing that late Mrs Awolowo would always be honoured too for the indelible legacy of very significant, behind-the-scene contributions to communal, state, regional and national development which she had left behind.
