Asake’s Family Rejects CAN’S Participation In Burial
The family of late Dr. Musa Asake, have written to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to stay away from the burial of their son.
This is coming after the association had set up a burial committee chaired by Rev. Stephen Adegbite “to organise a befitting farewell” for its late General Secretary.
A letter addressed to the Assistant General Secretary of CAN, Joseph Bade Daramola, and signed by the first son of the deceased, Aminchi Musa Asake, read:
“I received your letter dated May 22, 2018. I want to thank the Christian Association of Nigeria for reaching out to my family and wanting to commiserate with us on the passing on of my father. You have been so generous as to offer us assistance with the planning of his burial, even planning a service of songs and a commendation service. But at this point, I must ask CAN to stop, we do not need your assistance.
“The family has taken an independent decision that we will be solely responsible for the burial of our father, late Rev. Dr. Musa Asake. We have already set up an independent committee and will proceed accordingly with our plans. Thank you.”
Recall that that few hours after the death of Asake, some senior officers of CAN reportedly asked his Personal Assistant to surrender the keys to his (Asake’s) office.
