Former President Goodluck Jonathan said yesterday Mrs. Hannah Idowu Dideolu Awolowo's death forced him and his wife out of hiding.The former President spoke at the Ikenne home of the Awolowos after he led a delegation to visit the family.
“We, just like her immediate children, and indeed this country, have missed her. Within this period, my wife and I have been hiding; we don’t even go out. We thought we’ll be hiding for at least 12 months.“But in this particular case, we cannot hide. So, we have come for the condolence and to encourage our brothers and sisters that we are together. God brought her for all of us. She just had to be the direct mother of a few but she was a mother to all. We shall mourn more than even the direct children would.”
