Jonathan said that he was shocked to hear the news of TB Joshua’s death at the young age of 57.
He said: “TB Joshua was a devout man of God who served God and humanity with relentless passion.
“He was a man of sound doctrine, meek and faithful to his call and passion of reconciling men to God and offering hope to humanity.
“As a Christian leader, TB Joshua and his ministry exemplified Christ in faith, love and charity; positively impacting the lives of many Nigerians, Africans and millions of people across the world.
“I condole with his family, his church, and millions of his followers across the world. May God grant them peace and strength to cope with this loss.”
