Buhari condoles with Aregbesola over mother’s death
President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola over the passing away of his mother, Saratu Aregbesola.
A statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said President Buhari in a telephone conversation expressed sympathy with the governor, describing his mother “as a great woman who was a pillar of discipline to her children.’’
The President, according to the statement, said the matriarch of the Aregbesola family deserved great honour for “the sacrifices she made to bring up her children on the path of sound moral character and commitment to good reputation.’’
He 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 that Allah would bless her soul and reward all her good deeds with paradise, and also comfort the family she left behind.
