Nasarawa state Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has described the passing away of his first son, Hassan Abdullahi Sule, as a test from God.
Governor Sule stated this yesterday while receiving condolences at the palace of his father, the Sarkin Gude, in Akwanga Local Government Area.
The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Ibrahim Addra, had confirmed Hassan’s death, saying that the deceased died on Thursday night after he was discovered unconscious in front of his apartment and taken to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.
Condolence messages have since poured in for the Nasarawa State chief executive from President Muhammadu Buhari, Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, among other eminent Nigerians.
Citing copiously from the holy Qu’ran, the governor pointed out how God promised to test the faith of every believer.
“I see this as a test from God. I was the person consoling somebody that lost his nine children and 70 cows yesterday. And today God decided to test me, to see whether I was sincere in consoling that bereaved father,” Governor Sule said.
