Goodluck Jonathan Pays Tribute To Desmond Tutu
On behalf of myself and the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, I condole with the Government and People of South Africa on the passage of Bishop Desmond Tutu at the age of 90.
Bishop Tutu was a Nobel peace laureate and a global champion of peace, human rights and reconciliation, who lived a dedicated life of service to God and humanity.
As a preacher, Bishop Tutu was a great teacher,who used his privileged position not only to win souls and make disciples but also to mobilize and advocate for the freedom of the people of South Africa and promote justice and democracy across the continent.
Africa and indeed the rest of the world will miss Bishop Tutu as he was the continent’s foremost voice of reason and conscience.
