Mothers Are Golden! Meet the Nigerian Woman Whose Womb Has Produced a President, Vice President, a Minister & Wives of Governors

The aged woman pictured above is known as Hajia Dada Yar’Adua, the matriarch of the Yar’Adua family.

She was married to Musa Yar’Adua, a former Minister in Nigeria.

Her son, Shehu Musa Yaradua, was Vice President from 1979-1981. Another son of hers, Umaru Musa Yaradua, was Governor of Katsina State for 8 years 1999-2007, and later President of Nigeria 2007-2009 when he died.

Her grandson, Alhaji Murtala Shehu Yaradua, was a Minister between 2009-2011 and lastly, three of her granddaughters were wives of Governors of three different states.

Isn’t she blessed! Just one womb produced those great children.
