    They all die Overseas,because they all contributed one way or another to ruin our great nation. Millions of families in nigeria cant afford treatments inside nigeria, these families like the Babangida's can afford to build clinics in all major cities in Nigeria from their ill gotten wealth stolen from that poor country! crime and curruption is rampant in that nation because the people have lost all hopes of survival. Babangida's should all die painfully.none of them will rest in peace.

  5. ade says:

    Mr Babangida need to think about hereafter now b4 is toolate, your wife cannot change anything now but you can. I pray to almighty Allah to forgive all her sins and mine

  6. Maryam Babangida was a shining example to womanhood.. She led a life that shows that whatever you do lingers on after you go beyond. The evil that women do live after them and the good is often interferred in their bones. She loved the poor, she was always eager to help and contribute her quota. May her gentle soul rest in perpetual peace. May you forever leave in the bossom of the Lord. Amen.

May the good Lord comfort her family and may her soul continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord until we all meet there to part no more. Adieu, First Lady, you will always be remembered for what you’ve given to the people of Nigeria.

  10. This is but a pathetic tale. the legacy of poverty alleviation lives on after her still. may her humble soul rest in Peace. Mr. Babangida, take heart and bear the loss. God gives and takes as your belief says. Work on the children and give them more comfort at this time. Peace!

      The roses will weithered and men will die, whatever we do will follow us to the grave. Maryam's death is a loss to the country of Nigeria, and she should not have died abroad if we cater as she did for our own hospitals. May the good Loed grant her a perfect rest.
