    life is but a fleeting moment. Where are all the houses he built, homes he purchased?, career he fought so hard for?everyone talks about the future, saving for old age etc. It is worse here with the talk of RRSP’s and 401k’s like you will live forever. You spend your life praying to God you should complete your own purpose and not his own. I hope you lived differently Deji, and did not follow the way of the world. They only think of cars,houses,children, career. Oh what a shame.. d rich and d poor suffer the same fate. May God in his mercy forgive you, rest, your time here is done.

    This is sad. I gasped when I saw this. I’ve been following his profile since he was in charge of the Sports Commission. Death remains the humble remainder of our mortality. Rest in peace, Deji Tinubu, and may God console your family.
