President Bola Tinubu has mourned the death of Aderonke Kale, Nigeria’s first female major-general.

Kale was said to have passed away on Wednesday in London at the age of 84. 

In a statement released on Thursday by Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson, Tinubu described Kale as a pace-setter, saying her demise is a loss to the country.

“Major-General Aderonke Kale was a pioneer in her field. She embodied the courage, professionalism, capacity, and resilience of the Nigerian woman,” the statement reads.


“She thrived and conquered where many feared to tread. She was a towering figure; an inimitable role model.”

Tinubu sympathised with Kale’s family and encouraged them to take solace in the peerless legacy she left behind.

She was married to Oladele Kale, a professor of preventive and social medicine, and was a mother of five sons, including Yemi Kale, former statistician-general of Nigeria.
