"We have lost a virtuous and compassionate queen-mother, who lived her life in the service of Allah, the Muslim Ummah, the Ilorin Royal House, the Ilorin Emirate Council, Kwara State and the nation at large.

“She was always there for me. Her love and affection for me and my family cannot be quantified. Her soothing words of motherly advice to me over time still rings in my ears.

"I can say that during my meetings with our mother over the years, I found her to be a complete embodiment of peace, wisdom, humility, hard work, philanthropy, discipline and piety."
