Tinubu while visiting Aminu Alhassan Dantata, the patriarch of the Dantata and Dangote families said if Sani's survival had been dependant on money, friends, relatives and associates would have rallied around to ensure he did not have to die.

Tinubu described the death of Sani who is also, Aminu's nephew and a younger brother to Aliko Dangote, one of Africa's richest businessmen, as a demonstration of the will of Allah.

Accompanied to Alhaji Aminu's residence by Abdullahi Ganduje, the Kano state governor, Tinubu said no one human has the power to change Allah's will for man.

Tinubu said:

“It (death) has shown the demonstrations of Allah’s will. It is not money. If money can buy life, there is no worth that we will not pay."
