President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday commiserated with the governor of the state of Osun, Rauf Aregbesola, over the passing away of his mother, Saratu Aregbesola.
In a telephone conversation, President Buhari expressed sympathy with the governor, describing his mother “as a great woman who was a pillar of discipline to her children”.
A statement by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, quoted the the president as saying the matriarch of the Aregbesola family deserve great honour for “the sacrifices she made to bring up her children on the path of sound moral character and commitment to good reputation”.
President Buhari said the governor’s mother contributed immeasurably to the building of a respectable pedigree for her family by raising disciplined and humble children like Governor Aregbesola.
He prayed Allah to bless her soul and reward all her good deeds with paradise as well as comfort the family she left behind.
