The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has commiserated with the family of late Chief S.O Babalola on the demise of the businessman and religious leader.
Tinubu described the former Adini of Lagos State Central Mosque as a determined entrepreneur, philanthropist and devout Muslim who advocated his time to the service of Allah and humanity.
In a condolence letter to Babalola’s family, he stated: “He was an entrepreneur, philanthropist and devout Muslim who gave all he had in the service of Allah and humanity.
"As Seriki Adinni of Lagos Central Mosque, President-General of the Muslim Ummah of South-West, Nigeria, and Deputy President-General of Nigeria Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, he did a lot towards the propagation and development of Islam in Nigeria and beyond.”
The late Chief Sakariyahu Babalola was 85-years-old until his demise. He was buried according to Muslim rights. The late philanthropist will forever be remembered for his great impact on the development of his hometown, Ede, in Osun State.
Tinubu prayed for the deceased's family and asked that Allah grant the children and the wife comfort to bear the loss.
