Buhari calls Tinubu, condoles him over loss of first son, Jide


President Muhammadu Buhari says he is deeply grieved to learn of the passing away of Jide, eldest son of the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Buhari, in a telephone call on Wednesday to Tinubu on behalf of the Federal Government and his family, offered his deepest condolences to the Tinubu family over the loss of Jide.

Mr Femi Adesina, the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, said Buhari described the transition of Jide as “sad and painful.”

The President said that the nation had been denied the services and potential of the resourceful lawyer.
He prayed that God would grant the Tinubu family, friends and associates “the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss”, and comfort all who mourned the passage of the promising gentleman.

Jide Tinubu was a graduate of the University of Liverpool, England. He obtained Masters Degree in Maritime law from the University of London, and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1999.
