GEJ commiserates with Mohammed Ali's family over late boxer's demise

Former Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan talked about late boxing legend Mohammed Ali who died aged 74 last week.

His words:

Mohammed Ali was the peoples champion who transcended racial and economic bounds. He was also a uniting force who used his fame and tremendous good will to advance worthy causes and raise money for oppressed people the world over. He lived a life worth celebrating and is as he passes on, I join the world to celebrate him. He will never be forgotten. May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss and may his soul rest in peace.
