Osun State chapter of Hope Democratic Party (HDP) has described the sudden death of Alhaja Saratu Aregbesola, mother of Osun State Governor as a big blow not only to Ijesa people but also to the State.
“Alhaja Saratu was not only an inspiration to her son, the incumbent governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola but also to Ijesa people.
The party made the above statement in a condolence letter written to the first family of Osun state on the recent demise of the governor’s mother in Ilesa this week.
Mr. Wole Adedoyin, the Osun state chairman of HDP noted that the highly revered and respected late Alhaja Saratu Areagbesola would be long remembered and honored in Ilesa and Osun state for her indefatigable contributions to the development of Osun women.
Adedoyin said the late Saratu Aregbesola was a great business woman and leader whose philanthropic gesture cut across ethnic and religious boundaries adding that she would be remembered for her leadership qualities.
The state Coordinator of Osun Redemption Group (ORG) further prayed God to grant Alhaja Saratu a well-deserved rest from her earthly labours.
