LAGOS—SCORES of sympathisers thronged the residence of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Sen. Bola Tinubu, to pay their condolences over the loss of his first son, Mr Jide Tinubu. Meantime, the bereaved, Senator Bola Tinubu, yesterday, left Lagos for London, to see his late son’s wife and children who reside in the United Kingdom. 

Tinubu was said to have departed Lagos barely 48 hours after Jide was pronounced dead by doctors at the Lagos Island General Hospital. It was gathered that his departure to London was an apparent strategy to avoid hundreds of  APC stalwarts  and other personalities that have  turned his Bourdillon home, Lagos to a Mecca of sort, after news filtered in that his first son had passed away. 

When GAPOSAOLOFOFO visited his home yesterday, it was gathered that his wife, Oluremi Tinubu, who is the chairman, Senate committee on Environment, had also left home, but her destination was not disclosed. Among the early callers yesterday were Tinubu’s political associates, businessmen and women, religious leaders, neighbours, friends and family members among others. 

A chieftain of Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, who described the demise of Jide as a big loss urged Tinubu to take heart. “This is a serious matter; a lot of hope has been dashed. It is not an easy thing. Only God can console the family,” he said. The Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Opeyemi Oke, said in the condolence register “it is with a great shock I received the news.”

 A childhood friend of Tinubu, Alhaji Akeem Danmola, said that “may God never allow this kind of death to happen again to Asiwaju, it is too painful.” A Lagos lawmaker, who was one of the early callers, Mr Gbolahan Yishawu, representing Eti-Osa Constituency II at the Lagos State House of Assembly, described the death of Jide as “a loss too painful”. 

“It is not a pleasant moment for any of us close to Asiwaju, to Lagos State and entire Nigerians. It is very sad. Nobody will wish his enemy to lose a child. “For the father and mother to have lost their child is very painful, but we have to keep glorifying God,” Yishawu stated. During the condolence visit, of Alhaji Lawal Animashaun, the APC Divisional Chairman in Ikorodu, urged Tinubu to take heart. Animashaun said: “It is very painful but Asiwaju has to take heart.

 Nobody will like to bury his child but we cannot query the Almighty God.” Other sympathisers include: Elder Tayo Soyode, father-in-law of the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, league of Imams, members of Yoruba Tennis Club, Onikan and Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede, Lagos State Chairman of National Union of Road Transport Workers NURTW.
