Nasarawa Governor, Abdullahi Sule Says His Son’s Death Is A Test From God

KanyiDaily had reported that the governor’s 36-year-old son, who married his wife in June last year, died after a brief illness in the late hours of Thursday, January 26, 2023.

Hassan Sule was laid to rest on Friday in Gudi, Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa state.

While receiving condolences at the palace of his father, the Sarkin Gudi, HRH Alhaji Sule Bawa, in Akwanga LGA, Governor Sule said that his son died a day after consoling a man who lost nine children and 70 cows.

The governor noted that the death of his son was a test from God to see if he was sincere in consoling the bereaved father.

He said from the experiences he had gathered from the Holy Qu’ran, God promised to test the faith of every believer, saying, “This is my time to be tested.”

Sule said, “I see this as a test from God. I was the person consoling somebody that lost his 9 children and 70 cows yesterday, and today God decided to test me, to see whether I was sincere in consoling that bereaved father.”

The governor described his late son as a calm, disciplined and obedient young man, who treated his siblings equally and with mutual respect.

“He grew up carrying all his siblings along. It’s only God that has the power to take him away. He was the one taking decisions on our businesses. He is always on hand to advice me on what next to do, saying my schedule will not allow me to run any business.

“God took him away to test my resilience and faith. God didn’t seek my advice when he gave Hassan to me and he will not seek my advice when he takes him away,” he added.

KanyiDaily had also reported that the governorship candidate of the National Rescue Movement (NRM) in Adamawa State, Aliyu Maina is dead.
