Gospel icon Sonnie Badu has said he is “immensely saddened” by the untimely death of Ghana’s President John Evans Atta Mills.
On behalf of himself and the entire Sonnie Badu Ministries family, Sonnie extended his heartfelt condolences to the late president’s family and friends, and to all Ghanaians.
Speaking from the US, Sonnie Badu said: ”It was with a very heavy heart that I received the news of the president’s death. I feel I stand on behalf of the whole nation when I say I am grateful for the sacrifice he made to serve his people and that he should be remembered as an honourable statesman and a man who served his country with all he had within him. My prayers go out to his immediate family and the nation as a whole, that God may continue to strengthen us as we bare this huge loss that has left a void in the hearts of many.”
