Raheemat Momodu: We Lost A Gem

It is with a searing pain that we announce the death of a treasured friend, Hajia Raheemat Omoro Momodu, who for over three decades has been for all of us more than just another friend.

Raheemat passed away on Tuesday, 14 June 2022, in Abuja. She will be buried Wednesday, 15 June, 2022 at the Gwarimpa Cemetery, opposite War College after prayers for the repose of her soul at the National Mosque, Abuja by 1pm.

Until her death, she was Head of Human Security and Civil Society at ECOWAS- Economic Community of West African States.

We will hold on to the memory of Raheemat Omoro Momodu in death as we valued her in life.

Among the fond memories was her dynamic leadership of the Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Association of Women Journalists in the 1990s as the chairperson during which she became a vital ally in the establishment of the New Trend Movement in the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

As we learn to cope with the pain of her exit, we will exult and celebrate everyday the memories she left for us. That retention of a friend, more of a sister, who was always there.

That of a loyal, jovial, generous and dependable friend, associate and colleague.
