Atiku Condoles Fashola, Wishes Tinubu Quick Recovery


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condoled with the Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola, over the death of his father.

The former Vice President in a statement by his media office in Abuja, yesterday said that though the death of Pa Ademola Fashola is a sad development, his demise in the holy month of Ramadan was an enormous grace from God and urged the Fashola family to accept the death of its patriarch  in good faith.

“While it is understandable that the death of a parent is always a painful experience, I will urge members of the Fashola family to take the death of its patriarch in the holy month of Ramadan in good faith.

“The deceased, no doubt, has left an indelible ink as a man of honour, judging by the quality of children that survived him, and secondly, by his sterling administrative qualities in his days as the advert manager of the Daily Times of Nigeria,” Atiku said.

The former Vice President noted that Governor Fashola is a shining example of how a good home can make a positive influence in the life of an individual, and by extension, in the life of a country, adding “the dream of having a good country must start with a dream of building good homes.”

Meanwhile, the former Vice President has sent wishes of quick recovery to the former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu over surgery for sports injury to his knees.

Atiku noted that having been a victim of such domestic accident in the past, he would urge Tinubu to brace for the surgery and, upon recuperation, apply some caution in his body fitness workouts.

“It is a painful experience to bear an injury on one’s knees or on the ankle. It is even more painful to enter into the theatre as one advances in age. But I will urge the Asiwaju to brace for the surgery, while we wish him quick recovery,” the Turakin Adamawa said.
