President Goodluck Jonathan has mourned the passing away of renowned newspaper columnist and journalist Chief Pini Jason Onyegbadue, popularly known as Pini Jason who died Saturday afternoon in a Lagos hospital after undergoing a surgical procedure a few days ago.
Jonathan said Jason’s columns were set apart by their clarity, thoughtfulness, sound knowledge and commitment to public good.
A statement by President Jonathan’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Reuben Abati, read, “I am sorry to hear of the death of Pini Jason, a very decent man. His attitude to life was always positive. He wrote columns that were set apart by their clarity, thoughtfulness, sound knowledge and commitment to public good. We have lost another true defender of the people’s interests. He will be sorely missed by the Nigerian media family, and particularly his numerous readers. My best wishes to his family”.
