The Osun State government on Friday expressed condolences on the death of Mr Jide Tinubu, the first son of chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. This was contained in a press statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information, Mr Adelani Baderinwa, a copy of which was made available to journalists in Osogbo.
“The hearts and prayers of the entire good people of the State of Osun are with Tinubu family; we identify with the family on the painful occurrence of the young man’s sudden death and the trying time and we share in their grief
We know that death is inevitable but Mr Jide’s death is a colossal loss to Nigeria because it has denied the country the service of a resourceful, brilliant, able, ebullient and promising Nigeria. It is sudden, shocking, painful and cruel!
“We pray that almighty Allah give the Tinubu family the fortitude to bear the loss. We could not in anyway, hide from the fact that losing a loved one, especially a child, leaves a deep pain and bitter memory in a father’s life, but we urged the esteemed leader of the ruling APC to take solace in Allah, the only God that giveth and taketh life.
“May the soul of the gently young man rest in peace and may Allah accept him to Janat el Fridaus,” the statement reads.
