President Muhammadu Buhari thursday called the Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, and commiserated with him over the passage of his mother, Saratu Aregbesola.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, Buhari who is currently receiving treatment in London, expressed sympathy with the governor, describing his mother “as a great woman who was a pillar of discipline to her children.’’

Adesina also said the President noted that Aregbesola’s 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 added: “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 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.”
