Ex-CDS, Air Marshall Al-Amin Daggash, Loses Wife, Buhari Mourns

Former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshall Al-Amin Daggash (rtd), has lost his wife, Hajiya Binta Daggash.

Air Marshal Dagash served as Nigeria’s 7th Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) from 10 June 1998- 29 May 1999, under the regime of General Abdulsalami Abubakar.

The late Hajiya Daggash was the President of the Defence Officers Wives Association (DEFOWA) during the period.

Already, President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with Air Marshal Daggash, his family and the government and people of Borno State on the death of Hajiya Daggash.

In the condolence message, the President prayed for the repose of her soul.

In a statement issued by his Spokesperson, Malam Garba Shehu, Buhari said: “In such times of grief, words seldom do justice. She will be remembered for being an amiable, helpful and very selfless person.”

The President said that the deceased, who was a graduate of Guidance and Counselling and a teacher by training, left behind her aged mother, seven siblings, five children and eight grandchildren.

Among the siblings she left behind are Malam Sule Umar, a Kano-based documentary and filmmaker, and Hajiya Aisha Umar Yusuf, wife of the Publisher of Daily Trust and President, Nigerian Press Organisation (NPO), Malam Kabiru Yusuf.

Said President Buhari: “As the former President of the Defence Officers Wives Association (DEFOWA), Hajiya Daggash, did her best in promoting the welfare and interests of the families of officers and men in the three arms of the military.”
