Aregbesola Mother’s Death Depressing, Disheartening – Ajimobi
By Adebayo Waheed
Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi on Tuesday commiserated with his Osun State counterpart, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola over the death of his mother, describing her death as depressing and disheartening.
The governor’s Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Mr. Yomi Layinka, in a statement in Ibadan on Tuesday, said Ajimobi had described Madam Aregbesola’s demise as depressing and disheartening.
Ajimobi, who said he received the news of Mama Aregbesola’s death with disbelief, described the deceased as a pride to womanhood and pillar of support to her son.
“There is no doubt that Mama was an epitome of motherhood and pillar of support to my brother Gov Aregbesola and indeed, the entire Aregbesola family.
“She was a devout Muslim, a shining example of philanthropy, as she shared virtually all she had with the needy, irrespective of where they came from; a virtue she must have passed on to her children.
“Mama was pleasant, easy-going and was always there for all of us who are her son’s political associates. Mama will be sorely missed for her counsel and ever warm reception.’’ he said.
The governor said that the late Alhaja Aregbesola deserved to be celebrated for living a life worthy of emulation and for nurturing her children to stardom.
He prayed that Allah should grant the deceased Aljanah Firdaus and the Aregbesola family the fortitude to bear the loss.
