Maryam Abacha, wife of late ex-military dictator, General Sani Abacha, on Saturday said that she has forgiven those who hurt her family.

Her statement, which is coming 22 years after the former head of state died, was issued during her 75th birthday celebration, The Sun reports.

The former first lady said she can now forgive and let go of the pain because God has purified her heart and as such, she is ready to face death anytime it comes.

“God has purified my heart and I am still alive and grateful to Almighty Allah for that. I can die now or tomorrow, I am thankful to Allah for all my life.

“To all those who offended us, I am 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.

Maryam Abacha also appealed to Nigerians to embrace forgiveness towards each other.
