“On behalf of my family, MAAUN Conglomerate communities, I wish to express our deepest condolences to the family, the government, and the people of Niger Republic, Nigeria, and other humanitarian allies around the world over the sudden death of a kind-hearted and exemplary supportive friend, Rakietou Hassane Mossi.
She will be remembered as a humanitarian, change maker, and innovative strong young woman in humanitarian history due to her immense contribution in changing and improving the lives of poor and vulnerable people.
Her leadership was so sterling as she did not only influence the people and organizations she worked for, but developed and empowered friends, colleagues, and everyone that interacted with her in that capacity.
The strong ties of friendship between us have solidified to make us family. Her tireless sacrifices and inspiration to always work to build better access to education and empowerment for women and girls stand out.
Her daily inspirational posts on her status and social media on Islamic teachings of being kind, peaceful, and supportive to one another in addition her kindness in life to all; have been a key reflection by almost everyone who knows her after she passed away.
I have directed my foundation (Adamu Abubakar Gwarzo Foundation (AAG-Foundation) to innovate ways to continue to help in fulfilling her (Rakietou) touching lives, dreams and passion.
We will continue to remember, celebrate, and promote her good virtues and contributions to humanity in the African continent and beyond”.
The Founder attended the funeral of the Late Rakietou in Niamey, Niger Republic where he physically condoled with the family.
