President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday called Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, to commiserate with him over the death of his mother, Saratu.
According to a statement released by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, Buhari called Aregbesola from the UK to express his sympathy.
Buhari described the late Saratu “as a great woman who was the pillar of discipline to her children.”
The President 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.’’
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 that Allah would bless her soul and reward all her good deeds with paradise, and also comfort the family she left behind.
