Aliko Dangote: We Watched Life Support Machine Going Down Until it Stopped Working

”All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Friday in Kano commiserated with business mogul and President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, over the death of his younger brother, Alhaji Sani Dangote.

Tinubu described the late Sani Dangote as a gentleman, a Lagosian and a great Nigerian.

It was on a day Alhaji Aliko Dangote gave a heart-wrenching picture of the last moments of his brother, saying himself, their mother, Sani’s children were by his bed as the life support machine wound down.

Speaking at the Kano residence of Aliko Dangote, Asiwaju Tinubu said: “I call on the family to take heart and continue to pray for the repose of the soul of late Sani Dangote.

“We are here not to just commiserate or console you, we are here together to mourn our dear brother.

“Sani is not yours alone, he is a Lagosian and a great Nigerian and a friend and a brother to all of us here.

“I am not a preacher, but I know what it means to suddenly lose a close relation, especially a brother”.

The APC leader also condoled with the grandfather of the deceased, Alhaji Aminu Dantata.

“Death is a demonstration of Allah’s will, it is not about money, because money cannot buy life.

“We pray to Allah to forgive his sins and grant him paradise,” he said.

Dantata thanked Tinubu for the condolence.

Asiwaju Tinubu was in company with Kano State Governor, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and some other top dignitaries when he visited Alhaji Dangote.

Alhaji Aliko Dangote said doctors told him that his brother, Sani, would die in an hour, and that he died when it was time, “watching the life support machine going down until it stopped working.”

Dangote stated this when the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Alhaji Bola Tinubu, paid him a condolence visit on Friday in Kano.

“We have always known that there is life and there is death; as Muslims, we don’t know who is next, and it can be today, tomorrow or even now.

“That is why it is good to be good, so that when you get there, you will find out that you have done what you were asked to do on earth,” said Dangote.

He said his brother’s death was a very tough time for the family, especially for him because they were almost bound together.

“And having a brother like this, once you lose him, it is really very painful, because he died in front of myself, our mother and all his children.

“The most painful thing is when you are told that your brother will be passing on in about an hour and you stand by watching as the machine is going down until it stopped working,” Dangote said.

Alhaji Sani Dangote was the vice president of Dangote Group. He died on Sunday evening in the United States of America.
