President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has described the death of Sheikh Musa Muhammed, the Chief Imam of the Abuja Central Mosque as a sad setback to the efforts to reunite Nigerians of various faiths after a very divisive campaign leading to the recent elections.
“He died at a time when the counsels of Nigerians of the highest calibre are needed to continue unification efforts,” Buhari said.
Reacting to the news of the death of Chief Imam last night, Buhari described the late Imam Musa as an inspirational leader who preached love among men and women and fought hard all his life to diminish cleavages and divisive tendencies in our country.
Buhari said the Imam’s name will occupy a proud place among those who worked for the unity, peace and the well-being of the Nigerian state.
“I join many who mourn him and in doing so, I am proud to remember a great son of Nigeria. May Allah repose his soul and grant his family and the nation the fortitude to bear his loss,” Buhari said.
