I wish I could bring Jide back to life- Bola Tinubu

Bola Tinubu has broken his silence on the demise of his eldest son, Jide. Tinubu said no parent should experience such bereavement, adding, “I wish I could bring back my son, I can’t.

My son was a highly intelligent person with a vibrant personality and a zest for life. He followed his own course and made his own way on his own terms. Those who knew him could not help but like him.

Yet, he was taken away by cardiac arrest when it seemed he had so much life to still live. This is a reminder that we must live each day to its best, as none of us know when our last day shall be.

“Mortality comes upon us all. We have no choice in that but we do have a choice whether we shall be good or bad, just or unjust. Let us all strive toward the best in ourselves.”

“Jide lived for so long in London and there he has left behind a darling wife and three previous boys. My wife Remi, and I have gone to London to be with them at this painful time, to support and help them,” he reportedly said.

As a father, I must spend time putting my arms around the family he has left behind.”
