The statement further said that “the advent of Vanguard newspaper, in 1984, shaped the course of journalism in Nigeria as it accentuated racy news, balanced reporting, and incisive commentary: a tradition that has continued, and thus, become a significant force in the socio-political evolution of the country.”

The Governor described the newspaper proprietor as an epitome of hard work, dedication and humility, recalling how the newspaper won the maiden edition of 2018 Nigerian Online Merit Awards (NiOMA), as the best newspaper website because of the solid foundation Uncle Sam laid for the newspaper which has ensured its survival and excellence till today.

Dr Okowa wished the Vanguard Publisher many more years of good health and continuous service to our country Nigeria adding that his life remains an inspiration to many Nigerians in all walks of life.
