Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, has expressed grief over the death of the secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Dr. Musa Asake.
Rev. Asake, who was 67 years old, reportedly passed away Friday morning, after a protracted illness.
The Speaker said the late clergyman will be remembered for his passion for Christ and peace initiatives.
“The late clergy lived a life worthy of emulation. He was bridge builder, and a man of peace since his days as the Secretary General of Evangelical Church Winning All,” he stated, adding that, “It is with a deep feeling of loss that I condole with the body of Christ and the late reverend’s family.
“Late Dr. Asake was devout man of God, courageous leader and scholar par excellence.”
The speaker prayed the Lord to grant the deceased eternal rest in his bosom.
