A former military president, Ibrahim Babangida, has mourned the death of Jide, the first son of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Babangida, in a statement released on Friday by his spokesperson, Prince Kassim Afegbua, said he was sad over the unfortunate incident.
The statement reads in part: ”As parents, our usual prayers have always been that our children should see our end so that they could give us befitting burial anytime Allah calls us home; and not the other way round. We cannot question Allah in His decision anytime.
”It struck me with helpless awe to learn of the sudden death of your first son Jide, on Tuesday, 31st October, 2017. I feel a sense of personal loss over this sad incident which usually tends to test our faith in Allah as we sojourn through life.”
Similarly, the Niger State governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, has condoled with the national leader of the APC.
”Jide had been a source of joy to his parents. Therefore, I am appealing to them to see his death as a test from Allah,” he said.
