Saratu Aregbesola, the mother of the Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, is dead.

PREMIUM TIMES gathered that the octogenarian died in Ilesa, her hometown, in the early hours of Tuesday.

A close associate of the governor confirmed the death.

The governor, who is away in Birni Kebbi, Kebbi State for the APC governors’ meeting, appeared to confirm the story when he said on his Twitter handle @raufaregbesola that “inna lillahi wa inna inayhi raji’un.”‎

The above is an Islamic statement said after a calamity such as death that means ‘from God we come ‎and to him we shall return.’

    My condolences. Now it is time to burn state money on the funeral. Tax payers will pay for the funeral. At least this is Nigeria. Tax payers have no choice but to foot the bill.
