Records have it that, one thing she did that has made her immortalized in the heart of President Muhammadu Buhari is this: while she was alive in 2015, she waited for about 9 hours in Kebbi State to donate her life savings of about one million naira to President Buhari when he was the presidential candidate of APC. The old woman gave the money sacrificially to Buhari in support of his presidential ambition. This was indeed an expression of the trust and confidence she had in Buhari to bring the changes that Nigerians deserve.

After her death, President Buhari at that time, commended what she did and praised her for believing in a new Nigeria. However, considering some of the achievements of president Buhari in his administration, here is the reason why Fati Koko would be proud of President Buhari in the grave:


Hajiya Fati would be well pleased with Buhari as President Muhammadu Buhari did not fall short of her expectations. This is evident in the fact that ever since Buhari assumed seat as the President, he dedicated himself to serve Nigerians and bring progress to the country. In a nutshell, here are two outstanding achievements of president Buhari that Koko would be proud of.


In the area of unemployment, President Buhari brought up the N-POWER initiative as a means to alleviate poverty and increase employment rate in the country. Today, millions of youths have benefitted from this initiative and lots of lives have been transformed by the availability of jobs that were created from the initiative. This is indeed one thing Fati would be proud of in her grave.


It is on record that President Buhari never folded his hands in the midst of the insecurity situations in the country. He fought hard as a hardworking president to provide security to the great people of Nigeria. As a result of his hard work, it is credited to him that about 8000 Boko Haram terrorists surrendered to the Nigerian Army. Apparently, the old woman who supported him in 2015 would probably be very proud of him even in the grave for the good works he has done as a president.
