President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with Christians on the death of Bishop Lanre Obembe.
Obembe was a former chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Lagos branch.
The founder of El Shaddai Bible Church, Ikoyi, Lagos, died of undisclosed ailment on Tuesday at the age of 63.
In a statement on Thursday by the president’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, Buhari said Obembe devoted many decades of his life to the service of God and was an inspiration to many young people.
He urged all mourners to be comforted by the fact that Obembe served God and man with great zeal, and such labour of love would never go unrewarded.
“May his soul rest in peace and his good works be sustained by those he left behind,” Buhari prayed.
