President Muhammadu Buhari has described the death of world renowned evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke, as a particular loss for Nigeria and the African continent.
President Buhari’s thoughts were contained in a statement issued by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, and made available to State House Correspondents in Abuja on Saturday evening.
According to the statement, Evangelist Bonnie, who died at the age of 79 years, reached the rest of the world with the message of salvation, had a particular strong impact on the African continent, especially Nigeria.
He, however, commiserated with the immediate family of the departed preacher of the gospel, the government of Germany, his associates in ministry and all associated with him, praying that God will comfort all that mourn him.
