Buhari eulogises Peter Enahoro’s ‘fearless writing, commitment to truth’
President Muhammadu Buhari has extended heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and associates of Peter Enahoro, one of Nigeria’s foremost journalists.
Mr Enahoro died on Tuesday at 88.
On Tuesday, the president made his feelings known in a statement by his media aide Femi Adesina.
Mr Enahoro, “as a gifted and iconic journalist, author and publisher, earned the public trust by his fearless writings, tenacity, and commitment to the pursuit of truth,” said the statement.
Mr Buhari recognised the passion of the former editor-in-chief and managing director of the Daily Times was second to none.
Mr Enahoro also served as the assistant publicity officer at the Department of Information (now the federal ministry of information) and pioneer chairman of the National Broadcasting Commission.
Mr Buhari also lauded the deceased for using his knowledge and mastery to mentor people, who have also added value to journalism in the country.
The president urged those mourning Mr Enahoro to reflect on his contributions to the country and build on the many honours credited to him for journalistic excellence.
”May the soul of Peter Pan rest in peace,” Mr Buhari prayed.
