I have forgiven everyone, I also want everyone to forgive me, Hajia Dr Maryam Sani Abacha said


Dr Maryam Sani Abacha, the wife of the former Head of State, late General Sani Abacha has said that she has forgiven all those who offended the family in one way or the other while calling on the people to embrace the spirit of forgiveness and be each other's brothers keeper.

Maryam Abacha made the remarks during the celebration of her 75th birthday held in Abuja on Thursday.

Dr Maryam said,"One of the good things in life is for people to embrace the spirit of forgiveness among themselves. People should learn how to forgive each other. Forgiveness is very important as it has been emphasised in various languages and religions. Forgiveness promotes peaceful coexistence among other benefits,"

She further said," I want to use this opportunity to inform all those who are here and those who are not that we remain grateful to Almighty Allah for whatever happened to us whether good or bad. I also want everyone to know that I have forgiven those who offended us and at the same time I want those we offended to forgive us because God Has purified my heart and Iam still alive and grateful to Almighty Allah for that. I can die now or tomorrow, Iam thankful to Allah for all my life.

"To all those who offended us, Iam using this opportunity to say that I have forgiven them all. I hope we shall forgive each other and God will forgive us all," she said.

The former First Lady used the occasion to pray for peace and unity in the country. She also prayed for economic growth and development in the country while lamenting the security challenges bedeviling the country.

She, however, called on leaders and the entire populace to fear God in all their dealings. If everyone will contribute his quota and be a good citizen, Nigeria will be a great and prosperous country. May the Almighty Allah bless Nigeria and all Nigerians, Ameen.

We thank everyone for the love you have for us and everything.Thank you very much and God bless," she concluded.(End).
