Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has condoled with Kabiru Gaya, senator representing Kano south, over the death of Sadiq, his son.

 

The circumstances that led to the death of Sadiq is not clear, but the police have reportedly arrested five suspects inconnection to it.

 

He died on Tuesday.

 

Gaya was director-general of the support groups of Osinbajo when the vice-president sought the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

In a statement on Friday, Laolu Akande, the vice-president’s spokesman, quoted Osinbajo as saying Sadiq was like a son to him.

 

“This is a very, very sad visit. Sadiq was a young man. He was like a son to me,” Osinbajo said when he visited the senator.

 

“He has visited me a few times. He was a lawyer also like me. So, I had a very special relationship with him

 

 “I feel a very personal loss. I commiserate with and condole the distinguished Senator and all members of his family, the Government and the people of Kano State who have lost a very precious son in this young man.

 

“We believe in God, he is the only one who can give and take life. No matter what the circumstances are, only God can decide how long a man would live.

 

“All will be well, I know that even with his own family – his wife and his children, all will be well with them.

 

“I want to express my sincere condolences to all of us that are here and to pray that the Almighty God will give the family peace and that we will not see this kind of thing again. We will not experience the death of young people in our midst again.”

 

The younger Gaya was a staff member of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).

 

He was a graduate of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and the University of Wales, United Kingdom.
