President Muhammadu Buhari commiserates with family of the first man to appear on television in Nigeria, Kunle Olasope, who passed on at 82, leaving a legacy of excellence in broadcasting and foundation for many to build on.
The President sends condolences to the media industry, especially the broadcast sector, where Olasope shone brilliantly with Nigeria and Africa’s first TV station, Western Nigeria Television, WNTV, becoming a house-hold name.
President Buhari believes the veteran broadcaster’s contribution to media practice will always be remembered, and the focus of the programmes he anchored, which were mostly educational and informative, will remain relevant and inspiring.
The President prays that the almighty God will receive the soul of the departed and comfort his family.
