Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari yes­ter­day com­mis­er­ated with the gov­er­nor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, over the death of his mother, Saratu Aregbesola.

Pres­i­den­tial spokesman, Garba Shehu, said 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.’’

Shehu quoted Buhari as say­ing that 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,” Shehu stated.
