The Senator representing Osun East Senatorial District, Senator Babajide Omoworare has joined other sympathisers to commiserate with Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola the Governor of Osun on the demise of his mother, Alhaja Saratu Aregbesola who passed on yesterday.
In a statement made available to Ife City News by his Media Assistant, Tunde Dairo, Omoworare described late Mama Olobi (as she was fondly called) as a true example of an African woman who dedicated herself to the care of her children even long after her husband was gone.
“She will be remembered for her motherly love, and boldness, confidence and dedication to humanity and God”
“It is unfortunate that we do not have control over death and other forces of nature. We would have wished that mama live forever”
“However, we are consoled with the quality of life she lived and her dedication to her motherly duties and humanity. By every standard, she has her name on the list of excellent mothers”
“My sympathy and commiseration goes to Mr Governor, the Aregbesola family, the people of Ijesaland and the good people of Osun State in general in this sober moment”
“It’s my prayer that God will give all enough strength and fortitude to survive this time as we bid farewell to the jewel of the Aregbesola dynasty and wish her peaceful rest with her creator,” he said.
