Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State on Friday committed the death of his son, Hassan, unto God, saying he considers the death a test from God.

Governor Sule, at the palace of his father, the Sarkin Gudi, HRH Alhaji Sule Bawa, in Akwanga Local Government Area on Friday, t noted that his experience from the Holy Qu’ran showed that God promised to test the faith of every believer.
The governor had stated: “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 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.”
