Aare Jagunmade 1 of Lagos, Ambassador Abayomi Nurain Mumuni has described the death of Jide Tinubu as a great loss not only to the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu family but to Nigeria.
In his condolence message issued on Wednesday, Ambassador Mumuni extolled the virtues of the legal luminary for his sterling contributions to the noble profession and his alma mater.
According to him, “Barrister Jide, Asiwaju’s first son, though young, lived a life worthy of emulation for the younger generations and the yet unborn ones. His death is a colossal loss to Nigeria and Nigerians.
“He was a complete gentleman, friend of the people, and most importantly, a man who showed the true status of his father, Jagaban Bola Ahmed Tinubu, whose record of service to the nation can not be forgotten”.
Mumuni, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) also described Jide as a true Nigerian whose love for his fatherland could never be negotiated an inch.
While consoling his immediate family, Ambassador Mumuni also commiserated with the good people of Lagos State, the Lagos State Government and all Nigerians over the great loss, and prayed to Allah to grant Barrister Jide Tinubu eternal rest and admit him into Al-Janatul Firdaos.
