Former Vice President and All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed shock and anguish over the sudden death of Jide, the son of his political colleague and friend, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In a personal message by the Waziri Adamawa, Atiku commiserated with the Tinubu family, and urged them not to lose faith in the will of Allah despite the oddity of the present pain and challenges they may have found themselves in.
“Nothing happens in this world without the will of Allah. How long we live or when to die is all ordained by the Almighty. But it’s most heart-breaking for any parent to bury his or her own child.
I pray that Almighty Allah would grant the Asiwaju and Senator Remi, his wife, and the rest of the family the fortitude to bear this huge loss”, Atiku said.
The former Vice President also called on men and women of goodwill, friends and associates to rally round the Tinubus in prayers as they pass through this moment of grief.
