Saraki mourns CAN’s scribe, Musa Asake


The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has expressed sadness over the death of the General Secretary, Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr. Musa Asake.

Saraki, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja on Saturday, described the late Asake as “a great Christian torch bearer whose work and influence will be of use to many generations.”

He noted that Asake’s passion, zeal and love for God and the plight of Christians in Nigeria marked him out as a worthy and true servant of God and humanity.

The Senate President commiserated with the immediate family of the deceased, the leadership of CAN, the Christian community and the government and people of Kaduna State over the loss.

He said, “Dr. Asake left no one in doubt where he stood on matters of faith and state during his lifetime. He was forthright in his utterances and humble. Above all, he was a man of peace. His likes are rare. His demise represents a huge loss to the Christian faithful in particular and the country in general.”
