2 min read

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state describes the
death of a committed activist against Sickle Cell in Kano state,
which snowballed into the national arena, Shema’u Adam Imam,
who was until her death, a level 400 Microbiology student, in
Bayero University, Kano and a member of Sickle Trust Fund, as
suffocation to the fight against Sickle Cell in the country.
“As a level 400 student of Microbiology, before her death, Shema’u
Imam as the Chairperson of Sickle Cell community in Kano was a
focused and efficiently committed young lady, who believed in total
service to humanity,” governor Ganduje said. As a Sickle Cell patient, that, according to the governor, did not
slow her absolute dedication, resilience, responsible and
responsive fight for others in the community, against the health
challenge, emphasizing that, “She was an exemplary shining star
as well as a HEROINE.”
“It is pertinent to, therefore, on behalf of the government and the
good people of Kano state, extend our heartfelt and deep sadness
condolence over this loss,(Shema’u Adam Imam) while
remembering the gap created by this death, to her families, Sickle
Cell communities across the nation, friends and all other groups,”
he said.
Shema’u Adam Imam’s footsteps were big enough to
accommodate many feet before the Sickle Cell community gets the
most appropriate replacement, adding that, “We must encourage
others to take a leaf from her many contributions when she was
alive. As young as she was, she achieved many things in life.
Things that were people-centered. May her gentle soul rest in
perfect peace.”
In a statement by Governors Chief Press Secretary Malam Abba
Anwar said Governor Ganduje further commiserates with
Community Health and Research Initiative (CHR), Youth and
Environment Development Association (YEDA), Adamu Abubakar
Gwarzo Foundation, Sickle Cell Community organizations, CITAD,
Mufarka Youth Development Association, KANET, Kano Civil
Society Forum and many more over the death of the HEROINE.
