The late Chief Imam of the National Mosque, Abuja, Ustaz Musa Muhammad has been described as a pleasant and good natured cleric, who lived a life of service to humanity.
The Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), the Most Revd. Nicholas Okoh, who gave the description when he and his team paid a condolence visit to the management board of the National Mosque, in Abuja, added that the late Imam made an indelible impact on all who interacted with him.
Muhammad died at 68 after a brief illness at Abuja National Hospital.
The late Chief Imam, according to Primate, was a friendly person, bridge builder across religious barriers and a pleasant personality.
Okoh said the Chief Imam’s death had further confirmed the transient nature of life.
He said the late Imam has played his part and his contributions to cordial interfaith and peaceful co-existence relations would remain evergreen.
Responding, the Executive Secretary, National Mosque Management Board, Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar, said though life is ephemeral, they felt consoled by the kind gesture of the visit of Archbishop Nicholas Okoh and his team.
