All Progressives Congress (APC) national stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has commiserated with Governor Rauf Aregbesola over the passing of his mum.
Tinubu described Mama Aregbesola as a great mother who always wanted the best for her son and stood by him in prayers.
This is contained in a condolence message issued by Tinubu Media Office on Tuesday in Lagos.
In the message, Asiwaju Tinubu said: “Mama Aregbesola was a great mother, an epitome of motherhood. She always wanted the best for her son and stood by him in prayers through thick and thin.
“Mama was like a mother to me as well. We would miss her and her prayers. She passed on while her son was away in Kebbi, Kebbi State in the course of national duty.
“Governor Aregbesola was very close to his mum. I wish I could find the right word to comfort him. I have been through that way too. I know how it feels to lose a mother. A mother’s place is huge in our life. No one can take the place of our mother.
“No matter how old she may be, we never wish that our dear mother leaves us. My prayer is that our prayers help comfort Aregbesola.
“My condolences go out to other members of the Aregbesola family. We will never forget mama. We would pray for her as she prayed for us. May God give her eternal rest”.
