Today 14TH of August marks the 56th birth anniversary of a mother who sacrificed six of her sons for the sake of Allah, a mother considered as the flag bearer of resistance not only in Nigeria, but in Africa.
We call her Ummah, an Arabic name for mother. She is a mother to us, who is always at the side of telling the truth wherever the need arises. People that know Umma must count on her when it comes to siding with the truth and as a staunch hater of oppression, subjugation, and exploitation.
