Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives has expressed grief over the death of Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Musa Asake.
Dogara, in a statement on Friday said that the late cleric would be remembered for his passion for Christ and peace initiatives.
DAILY POST recalls that Asake, from Southern Kaduna, passed away on Friday morning, in Abuja after an illness.
The speaker, however, prayed the Lord to grant the deceased eternal rest in his bosom.
He said, “The late cleric lived a life worthy of emulation; he was a bridge builder and a man of peace since his days as the Secretary-General of Evangelical Church Winning All.
“It is with a deep feeling of loss that I condole with the late reverend’s family.
“Late Dr Asake was devout man of God, courageous leader and scholar par excellence.”
Meanwhile, Asake led a national protest two weeks ago on the senseless killings of Christians in Nigeria by suspected Fulani herders.
