President Muhammadu Buhari is deeply grieved over the passing away of Jide Tinubu, eldest son of the All Progressives Congress APC National Leader, Ahmed Tinubu.

President Buhari had on Wednesday called Tinubu on the telephone, on behalf of the Nigerian Government and his family and offered his deepest condolences to the family.

Describing the transition of Jide as sad and painful, the President said that “the nation has been denied the services and potentials of the resourceful lawyer.”

He prayed that God would grant his family, friends, and associates the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss and comfort all who mourn the passage of the promising gentleman.

Jide Tinubu died on Wednesday, November 1, after a brief illness.
