President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday sent condolences to the family of media and PR guru Bob Ewulonu Beremako Ogbuagu. The doyen, a former Managing Director of Champion newspapers and one of Africa’s foremost Public Relations practitioners, died on Monday, aged 92.

Buhari in a statement signed by his Special Adviser (Media& Publicity) Femi Adesina commiserated with all the professional colleagues of Ogbuagu, “who spent most of his life in the service of God, and nurturing the growth of journalism and Public Relations in Africa.”

Adesina said: “The President affirms that Ogbuagu consistently followed the path least travelled by many in his profession in order to establish Public Relations in Nigeria and Africa, agreeing to serve as the President of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations and Federation of Africa’s Public Relations Associations.

“President Buhari salutes the uncommon courage, foresight and integrity that Ogbuagu brought into the practice of journalism and Public Relations, attributing his success to the lessons drawn from the nationalist movements and inspirations from the late President of Nigeria, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe.

“The President prays that God will grant the family and close associates the fortitude to bear the loss.”
