President Muhammadu Buhari has joined the Obasi family, in mourning the passing of the Publisher of Hallmark Newspapers, Prince Emeka Obasi aged 58.

Buhari also joined the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) and Nigeria Guild of Editors (NGE) to mourn the passing of the former Commissioner for Information in Abia State who died on Wednesday morning after a protracted ailment.

The President commiserated with friends and professional colleagues, especially members of the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN) over the sad loss of the veteran journalist and administrator.

He affirmed that Prince Obasi lived a patriotic life, contributing to the growth of the nation and welfare of citizens, setting up legacies like the Public Policy Research and Analysis Centre (PPRAC), which organises the annual Zik Prize in Leadership Awards.

Buhari also prayed that God will accept the soul of the departed, and comfort all those who mourn him.
