Former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has described the late correspondent of Thisday newspaper in Ekiti State, Mr. Toba Suleiman as a thoroughbred journalist whose death has robbed the profession of a potential great in the media industry.
In his condolence message on the passing of Mr. Suleiman, the former governor said the news of the death of the young man was “shocking, devastating and painful especially coming at a time when his experience was just blossoming with many years ahead of him to excel in his chosen career”.
“During his stint in Ogun State, I discovered in him a fine, religious gentleman and a balanced, organised professional who carried out his normal duties without fear or favour. There is no doubt he will be greatly missed by his colleagues, his organisation and the entirety of the people came across during his journalism career”.
“My heart goes to his family, friends and colleagues at this crucial period and it is my prayers that God in His infinite Mercies give them the fortitude to bear the great loss”.
