The passing on to glory of the former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church Cameroon, the Very Reverend Dr Nyansako Ni Nku makes headline news on most if not all English newspapers published this Thursday April 29.
The Guardian Post newspaper dedicates its whole cover page to the life and death of the religious leader.
It says the Presbyterian Church has lost an iconic Moderator, preacher and orator who had predicted his ascension to heaven 14 years ago.
The lone daily newspaper reports on the life of the Very Reverend Dr Nyansako Ni Nku after he went on retirement in 2009 as Moderator of the Presbyterian Church Cameroon.
The paper equally relays the reactions of a good number of personalities on the passing away of the Moderator Emeritus including; the Right Reverend Samuel Fonki Forba, Barrister Ntumfor Nico Halle, Barrister Akere Muna, Nfon Mukete IV Ekoko, Dr Simon Munzu, Senator Mbella Moki to name but these.
In its editorial, The Guardian Post, focuses on what the late Moderator told the Biya regime years ago on the Anglophone crisis and how this could have helped change the face of the crisis if and only if they had listened to him.
“When The Sermon Died” this is the headline news proposed by the Eden newspaper on the death of the late PCC Moderator.
The paper says he was a true icon from God’s vineyard and his death comes to add to the series of deaths recorded during this current month of April on the part of both political and religious personalities in the country.
The Post Weekender holds this same view. It says in one of its sub-headlines that after Christian Cardinal Tumi, another religious baobab falls, the Very Reverend Nyansako Ni Nku.
The paper describes him as a gentle, soft spoken but outspoken preacher who always stood on the side of the truth.
The Very Reverend served as Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon between 1999 to 2009.
