Buhari calls Gov Aregbesola over mum's death

President Mu­hammadu Bu­hari on Thursday telephoned the Gov­ernor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, to commiserate with him on the death of his mother, Ma Saratu Aregbesola.

The President, who is on medical vacation in London, described the deceased as “a great woman who was a pillar of discipline to her children”.

According to an Aso Rock statement, Buhari 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 noted that 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, add­ed the statement is­sued by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu.
