Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has revealed details of a courtesy visit he paid on Hajjia Aya Dada Yar’Adua, the mother of former President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.

The 2023 presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) made the disclosure in a Facebook post on Wednesday evening.

He also shared photos of the visit.

Atiku, who was in Katsina to seek the support of PDP delegates in the state, said he visited the Yar’Adua family compound to round off visit.

The former Vice President expressed delight at meeting the matriarch of the family in “good condition”.

He said, “My visit to Katsina would be incomplete without a stopover at the Yar’Adua family compound.

“Hajjia Aya Dada Yar’Adua, the mother of my late mentor, Tafida Shehu Musa Yar’Adua and former President Umaru Yar’Adua, has been a mother figure to me since my association with the family.

“I’m happy to have met her in good condition. She prayed for my success and peace and unity to return to our dear country.”
