Press Statement

Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, commiserates with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over the death of his son, Babajide Tinubu.

The governor describes Babajide’s death as painful and unexpected, and a huge loss to the Tinubu family and the larger family of progressives in the country.

Akeredolu, who describes the death of any young and promising son as an irreparable loss to the father, wishes that the good Lord will grant Asiwaju Tinubu and his family the strength to bear the loss.

He says Babajide, a promising young Nigerian, departs this sinful world when he is expected to join other people of like minds to serve their father’s land.

While asking Nigerians to continue to pray for the Tinubu family, Akeredolu asks the APC national leader to take solace in the fact that God giveth and God taketh.

Arakunrin Akeredolu prays Almighty Allah to console Asiwaju Tinubu over the death of Babajide and for Allah to grant him eternal rest.
