The chairman of the state chapter of the party, Chief Henry Ajomale, expressed the party’s condolences in an interview in Lagos.
He said the chapter was devastated by the sad news, while describing the incident as unfortunate.
“This is a very unfortunate incident and we are so devastated by this sad news.
“We commiserate with our great national leader, Tinubu on this great loss and we pray God will grant the entire family the fortitude to bear the loss,” he said.
Ajomale said he was personally pained by the demise of Jide as he was very close to the family.
The manner in which Jide Tinubu, first son of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu, died has been revealed.
According to a member of the Tinubu family, who asked not to be named because of the sensitive nature of the matter, Jide suddenly collapsed and died from what was suspected to be a heart attack around 9 pm on Tuesday.
“However, after the incidence, close family members rushed him down to hospital on Lagos Island where he was confirmed dead on arrival,” the source told journalists in Lagos
He added that the tragic news was kept secret because the father, Bola Tinubu, was in Abuja for the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of his party, the APC.
The Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday condoled with the national leader of the party, Chief Bola Tinubu over the death of his son, Jide, earlier in the day.
