Tinubu condoles NSCIA, MUSWEN over Babalola’s demise
All Progressives Congress National Stalwart and former Lagos governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has commiserated with Muslim Ummah in the country and the Nigeria Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs over the demise of Seriki Adinni of Lagos Central Mosque and Deputy President-General of NSCIA, Chief S.O Babalola.
Babalola who was the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Telemobile Nigeria Limited was also the President Muslim Ummah of South-west of Nigeria (MUSWEN) until his death. A native of Ede in Osun State, he died in Lagos at the age of 85 and has been buried according to Muslim rites.
Asiwaju Tinubu described the late Babalola as an entrepreneur, philanthropist and devout Muslim who devoted all he had to the service of God and humanity.
In a condolence letter to the Babalola family signed by him and released yesterday by his Media Office, Tinubu said, “Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences over the passing of the patriarch of your family, Chief Sakariyahu Babalola, at 85. I pray that Allah grants the wife, children and all those he left behind the strength to carry on without him and to continue with his good deeds.”
