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 â€œas a great woman who was a pillar of discipline to her children.â€™â€™
Adesina also said the President noted that Aregbesolaâ€™s family deserved great honour for â€œthe sacrifices she made to bring up her children on the path of sound moral character and commitment to good reputation.â€™â€™
He added: â€œPresident Buhari said the governorâ€™s mother contributed immeasurably to the building of a respectable pedigree for her family by raising disciplined and humble children like Aregbesola.
â€œHe prayed that Allah would bless her soul and reward all her good deeds with paradise, and also comfort the family she left behind.â€
