God Took My Son To Test My Resilience – Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, Says
Gov Abdullahi Sule of Nasara state is mourning the demise of his son, while describing it as a test from God.
TORI had earlier reported that late Hassan passed away on Thursday night, January 26, after a brief illness. The deceased who got married in June last year was Sule’s eldest son with his first wife, Silifat.
While receiving condolences at the palace of his father, the Sarkin Gudi, HRH Alhaji Sule Bawa, in Akwanga LGA, Governor Sule 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.”
“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.”he said
He described his late son as a calm, disciplined and obedient 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” the Governor said
He was laid to rest on Friday in Gudi, Akwanga Local Government Area of the state.
