Technical Aid Corps DG,Buba Yakub, Celebrates Mama Lateefat Gbajabiamila at 94
*_Says She Remains a Woman of Admirable Virtues Whose Famed Industry and Commitment to Humanity Have Contributed in Shaping Nigeria._

Director General of the Nigerian Technical Aid Corps,Rt.Hon.(Dr.)Yusuf Buba Yakub,has described Alhaja Lateefat Olufunke Gbajabiamila as a woman of very admirable virtues whose personal industry and commitment to humanity,he says, have combined to shape the fate of not only Lagos State,but the Nigerian nation at large.

Buba,who noted the above in a birthday message to the 94-year-old Matriarch of the Gbajabiamila family of Surulere, Lagos State,a message he personally signed and made available to his media handlers, Saturday morning,in Abuja ,extolled the salient qualities of a woman who history recognizes as the first elected female Local Government Chairman in Lagos State.

He said:
” There is no doubt that Mama remains one of the greatest women to grace the turf of the Nigerian nation at all times.

“She has in over the last 70 years of her adult life emptied herself of the deepest deposits of goodwill,wisdom, character ,astuteness and industry, all from which she has drawn extensively to remain an outstanding Paragon of community leadership, political service,committed philanthropy and religious devotion.

“It is no wonder, therefore,that the traces of the life of quality service Mama has led these past years remain aglow in the lives of her children, including the current Chief of Staff to Mr President and Speaker of the 9th House of Representatives,Rt.Hon.Femi Hakeem Gbajabiamila,our dear Leader,and his sibling,Lanre,both of whom have discharged themselves equitably in their very unique and distinguished services to Fatherland

“As we celebrate Mama today,we cannot but do more,seeing the laudable trajectories her life and service to humanity have continued to shape in the lives of not only her biological children,those of others,her community,adherents of the two major religions and even in politics ,where Rt.Hon.Gbajabiamila famously represented Surulere I Federal Constituency for a record twenty years,thanks to the trail Mama blazed and the golden footprints she left earlier behind.

Congratulations,Mama,at 94.Congratulations,Leader and the Gbajabiamilas on this new milestone.May Allah (SWA) bless her new age with more years,” the text concluded.
