President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday expressed sadness over the death of the General Overseer of Soul Winning Chapel, Rev. Moses Iloh.

A statement by Buhari’s Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, described Iloh as a bold cleric “who throughout his public life and ministry abhorred corruption.”

While commiserating with the family, friends, associates and the Christian community in Nigeria, Buhari said the late Iloh “promoted morality and influenced his followers to seek righteousness that truly exalts a nation.”

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Reverend (Dr) Moses Iloh, the General Overseer of Soul Winning Chapel.

“President Buhari extends his heartfelt condolences to Rev Iloh’s family, friends, associates and the Christian community in Nigeria, who mourn the demise of an exceptional statesman and religious leader.

“The President affirms that the faith-based community and the nation will immensely miss the bold cleric who throughout his public life and ministry abhorred corruption, promoted morality and influenced his followers to seek righteousness that truly exalts a nation.

“The President trusts that Rev Iloh – the philanthropist, labour leader, humanist, sportsman, and great teacher of the gospel- will be long remembered and honoured as a worthy patriot who stood for social justice, peace and truth.

“President Buhari urges all who mourn Dr Iloh, who has left a worthy and commendable legacy for other patriotic Nigerians to build upon, to always be inspired by his deep love, devotion and dedication to humanity.

“The President prays Almighty God to grant the deceased eternal rest and comfort all those he left behind.”
