Buhari sends condolence message to Pope Francis over death of Bishop Joseph Aje

By Aishat Salihu

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his condolences to the Catholic Pontiff, Pope Francis, President and members of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, and the entire Catholic community in the country, over the demise of the Bishop Emeritus of Sokoto, Most Rev Kevin Joseph Aje.

The Bishop Emeritus, who served as a priest for almost 50 years, retiring at Sokoto in 2011, passed on at the age of 85.

In a statement by Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Buhari stated Bishop Aje’s steadfast advocacy of cordiality between Christians and Muslims in the country.

The President further recommended the sterling virtues of Most Rev Aje to younger priests and preachers, and to all Nigerians at large as he was a peacemaker and bridge builder, stressing that this would resonate whenever the departed cleric comes to mind.

President Buhari also prayed for the repose of the soul of the Bishop Emeritus describing him as a “great spiritual father,” who has left his footprints on the sands of time.
