Many who met the late Jide Tinubu, who was a lawyer, fondly described him as cerebral, industrious and full of life.
“In this moment of grief, the Party offers its sincere condolence and deepest sympathy to His Excellency and other immediate family members over the painful loss. May the outpouring of sympathy and the comfort in knowing that the late Jide’s death is felt by many, help the family through this difficult time.
According to reports, Jide who was the first son of Bola Tinubu, suddenly collapsed and died from what was suspected to be a heart attack around 9:00 PM on Tuesday.
