The Governor of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on Friday, described the death of his mother as a big blow to the Aregbesola dynasty and womanhood.
Recall that Alhaja Saratu Aregbesola died at the age of 84 years on Tuesday and was buried on the same day in her residence, Ilesa, Osun state according to Islamic rites.
But while hosting the Kwara state Governor who paid him a condolence visit over the death of his mother, Alhaja Saratu Aregbesola, he said it was a great loss.
The governor who broke down in tears while eulogizing his mother, said the demise had in no doubt caused him deep sorrow, describing it as a ‘deep disaster.’
“My mother would have been 85 years in the next few weeks if she had not died, but even at 90 years, I will not wish her dead.
“So it is a deep sorrow that I have to lose my mother as her death was not only shocking but painful to me personally.
“Her death has made me to know further that it is very tough to lose one’s mother, aside looking good on camera, within me, I have a feeling of great loss, but I am consoled with the voluminous condolences and expression of sympathies and love from all quarters.
“This is an attestation to the fact that my mother is very happy in her new station most especially for the expression of concerns and sympathies received across faiths and personalities from all walks of life.
“May God translate all these grieves, condolences to rewards for my mother wherever she is now and grant her soul the best place in the Aljana Fridao (paradise).
“May Allah spare the lives of those she left behind and make us live longer.”
