The family of late Rev. Dr. Musa Asake, the General Secretary of Christian Association Of Nigeria has asked the body not to offer any assistance to the family towards the burial arrangements of the deceased.
The rejection came barely a day after CAN had set up a burial committee chaired by Rev. Stephen Adegbite “to organise a befitting farewell” for its late General Secretary.
The family of Asake conveyed their feelings in a letter dated May 23 2018, and signed by the first son of the deceased, Aminchi Musa Asake.
“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.”
