I wish I could bring back my son – Tinubu
The National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator has issued an official statement mourning the sudden death of his son, Jide Tinubu even as he expressed regret that he wished he could bring back to life. Late Jide, according to the statement, died from cardiac arrest.
In a statement personally signed by the APC national leader, a copy of which was made available to Daily Trust in Lagos, Tinubu described his late son as “a highly intelligent person with a vibrant personality and a zest for life.”
We want to express our thanks and deep appreciation to all who have demonstrated their sympathy and expressed their condolences over the loss of our eldest son, Jide. I want to especially thank President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the state governors, distinguished Senators particularly Senate President Bukola Saraki, members of the House of Representatives, APC leaders and members and indeed all Nigerians. I thank the traditional rulers for their display of support.
“He followed his own course and made his own way on his own terms. Those who knew him could not help but like him. Yet, he was taken away by cardiac arrest when it seemed he had so much life to still live,” Tinubu’s statement read.
Tinubu, a former Lagos State Governor added in his statement that the late Jide lived for so long in London and where he left behind his wife and three boys.
“Even those who don’t agree with me politically have shown strong support and care indistinguishable from that of my associates. This says so much about the innate goodness in all of us. For no matter what, we are not foes or enemies. We are all of one human stock, a single nation, one family.”
