Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has condoled with Nigerian footballer and Super Eagles Assistant Captain, Ahmed Musa, over the death of his mother, Mrs Sarah Moses.
The governor joined members of the family, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and football lovers in mourning the mother of Musa who died last Thursday.
He noted that the deceased single handedly nurtured Ahmed and her other four daughters when her husband passed on 21 years ago.
He said the generality of Deltans and football lovers are with him in prayers in this time of grief over the unfortunate demise of his mum.
“We received the news as a huge shock and we are pained because a few months ago, Ahmed Musa led a team of the Super Eagles of Nigeria to Asaba on a friendly match with the Cranes of Uganda at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.
“We share in Ahmed Musa’s sorrow and pains at this period and we pray that God will grant him the courage to bear the loss even as we pray for the repose of the soul of the departed mother.
“On behalf of my family, the government and people of Delta State, we mourn with our brother, Ahmed Musa, on the unfortunate demise of his beloved mother, Mrs Sarah Moses,” he said.
