Asiwaju Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, prayed that Almighty Allah comfort the Dangote family and grant the deceased eternal rest.
Alhaji Sani Dangote was the vice president of Dangote Group. He died on Sunday evening in the United States of America.
In a statement on Monday by his Media Office, Asiwaju Tinubu said: “I offer my deepest condolences to President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, over the unfortunate passing of his younger brother, Alhaji Sani Dangote.
“Alhaji Sani Dangote was humble, diligent and hardworking. He worked closely with his brother to build the Dangote Group into a successful conglomerate it is today.
“Like his brother, he was also a successful industrialist with huge investments in manufacturing, agriculture, banking, and oil and gas. He contributed immensely to the development of this country particularly within that industrial sector.
“May Almighty Allah comfort Aliko Dangote and indeed the entire Dangote family at this difficult moment. May He also forgive the late Sani his shortcomings, reward his good deeds and grant him Aljanna Firdaus. Amin.”
