Why Bola Tinubu’s first son, Jide had to die – Fani-Kayode

Published

on

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has linked the death of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s first son, Jide Tinubu to his father’s interest in taking over President Muhammadu Buhari’s job.

According to him, “one year and six months before the 2019 presidential election, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, former Governor of Lagos state, APC National Leader, Buhari’s closest and most powerful ally in southern Nigeria and a man who, it is rumoured, himself has presidential ambition lost his first son”.

This is contained in an article titled: The angel of death that stalks the corridors of power.

Fani-Kayode also recalled other instances that involved those who have had the privilege to be in the presidential villa.

He wrote: “Chief Bisi Onabanjo, the first democratically-elected Governor of Ogun state lost his first son. Alhaji Lateef Jakande, the first democratically elected Governor of Lagos state, lost his first daughter. Dr. Omololu Olunloyo, the second democratically-elected Governor of Oyo state lost his son.

“Chief Festus Okotie-Eboh, the first Minister of Finance of Nigeria was killed. Chief Alfred Rewane, one of the founding members of the Action Group and a leading figure in NADECO, was killed. The list is endless and I could go on and on.

“Alhaji Musa Yar’adua was Minister of Lagos Affairs in the First Republic. He was blessed with a long and peaceful life. However two of his sons were not so lucky.

“His first son, General Shehu Musa Yar’adua, who was number two to General Obasanjo when he was military Head of State and who for many decades was one of the most powerful men in the country, was murdered whilst he was in prison. His second son, President Umaru Yar’adua, was cut short in his prime by a strange and inexplicable ailment after he had been President for only three years.

“He was succeeded by his number two, Vice President Goodluck Jonathan. Jonathan lost his brother and his mother-in-law one year after he became President. After losing the presidential election in 2015 he lost his Special Advisor on Political Affairs and his Chief Security Officer within a matter of months.

“Worse still those that he had been deputy to throughout his political life, either as Deputy Governor or Vice President, always suffered one form of misfortune or the other, whether it be death, shame, incarceration or impeachment, and he would end up stepping into their shoes and taking their place.

“When it comes to our military rulers the story of consistent tragedy is no different- General Aguiyi-Ironsi, our first military Head of State was killed. General Yakubu Gowon, our second military Head of State, was toppled from power, exiled, lost his brother and his first son was jailed.

“General Murtala Mohammed, our third military Head of State, was killed and lost both his son and son-in-law. General Olusegun Obasanjo was our fourth military Head of State and we touched on his misfortunes earlier.

“General Muhammadu Buhari, our fifth military Head of State, was toppled from power, locked up for three years, lost his mother whilst he was in detention and was not allowed to attend her burial, lost his number two (General Tunde Idiagbon) in very strange and suspicious circumstances and later lost two daughters.

“General Ibrahim Babangida, our sixth military Head of State, was eased out of power and compelled to ”step aside” amidst massive controversy and turmoil and later lost his wife.

“His number two, Rear Admiral Augustus Aikhomu, lost his first son, Chief Ernest Shonekan, our first and only Interim Civilian Head of State, was badly humiliated and toppled from power.

“General Sani Abacha, our seventh military Head of State, lost his son, was removed from power and was killed. General Abdulsalami Abubakar, our eighth military Head of State, as far as I am aware is the only exception and appears to have escaped any misfortune.”

    this report credited to chief fani kayode is rather unfortunate from an assumed erudite scholar Kike him.
    The information supplied are grossly inconsistent.
    Is this because of power?
    Those are yet to know what is going to kill them

    Must Fani Kayode talk all the time? his plenty of childish talks are quiet tiresome. death has it’s claws on every family whether rich or poor.. powerful or powerless.. we have all lost loved ones either in our own generation or the generation before us. So instead of mourning with the old man he comes on air to talk as if none of his family member has ever died….this quite shameful from an ex-minister.

    Death is inevitable and it is no respecter of class, status, race or age. Are ploitical leaders the only ones that have lost persons during their prime of success. It is high time we started riding our minds of bias in our judgement. So all the family members of poor people that died at one point or the other is as a result of their endeavour. I doubt if this is actually from the purpoted person. It would be unfair to say that they lost their loved ones as a result of their political ambitions.

    Death is inevitable, all man created by almighty God must died, when to died, how death will come, what will cause the death, where one will died, nobody knows, why all these? On the day of judgement every one will give account.
