Rev Moses Iloh, the General Overseer of Soul Winning Chapel, with headquarters in Yaba, Lagos died on Saturday, aged 88 years.
Moses Iloh apart from being a General Overseer f his ministry, was also one of the prominent Fathers in the land as far as Christianity is concerned.
Apart from Iloh’s contribution to the development of cycling in Nigeria, he was also a strong advocate of the less privileged. He never spared any administration that fails to live up to the expectations of the people.
Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung eulogised the elder statesman and cleric for his contributions to nation building and development exemplified through his pastoral teachings.
“This is sad news to the sports fraternity especially now that we need experienced sports administrators to assist us in rescuing some sports that are almost moribund and dying gradually.”
Immediately the news of his death was announced, condolence messages were expressed by those Rev. Iloh touched one way or the other.
The president also mourned late Rev. Moses Iloh. Buhari in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina condoled with the deceased’s family, friends, associates and the Christian community in Nigeria.
Buhari said Illoh, who he described as a philanthropist, labour leader, humanist, sportsman and great teacher of the gospel, would be long remembered and honoured as a worthy patriot.
