Northern Govs Pay Tribute To Allah De

Alade-Odunewu

The Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) has commiserated with the family of late journalism icon and public affairs commentator, Alhaji Alade Odunewu, Alias Allah De, who died on Thursday at the age of 85 years.

Speaking on behalf of the forum, Chairman of the forum and Governor of Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, described the late former Chairman of the Nigerian Press Council as a thoroughbred journalist who touched the lives of many in a positive way and helped to strengthen freedom and democracy.

In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Aliyu, Danladi Ndayebo, the NSGF said “From his days as a newspaper columnist, through his membership of the Federal Electoral Commission(FEDECO), to his appointment as the Chairman of the Nigerian Press Council, and his life in retirement, the late Odunewu remained with the people”.

The governors expressed hope that the generation of journalists who benefited from the immense knowledge and managerial acumen of the late journalist would keep the flag flying by internalising the good virtues of the late Odunewu, whose death they described as a great loss to the journalism profession and humanity in general.
