Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Tuesday in Ibadan commiserated with his Osun counterpart, Rauf Aregbesola,  on the death of his mother.

Mr Yomi Layinka, the Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy to the Governor, quoted Ajimobi  as saying in his  condolence message that the death was depressing and disheartening.

The governor said  he received the news of  the demise  with disbelief, adding that  the deceased was 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.
