This was disclosed in a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President.
The President prayed God to rest the soul of the former Head, Department of Music, The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Director of Music, Celestial Church of Christ Worldwide, and holder of the Member of the Order of the Niger (MON) National Award.
