‘God took away my son to test my resilience and faith’, Gov Sule on son’s death

VP Yemi Osinbajo condoles with Gov Sule and the state

Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule has said he considers the death of his eldest son, Hassan Sule, as a test from God.

The governor stated this on Friday while receiving condolences at the palace of his father, the Sarkin Gudi, HRH Sule Bawa, in Akwanga Local Government Area.

Hassan died at the age of 36 on Thursday night after a brief illness. He was buried on Friday in Gudi, Akwanga LGA.

Speaking on the incident, the governor 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.”

He 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.”

Sule 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 advise 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,” the governor added.

The deceased who got married in June last year was Sule’s eldest son with his first wife, Silifat.
