The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has expressed deep grief over the death of Channels Television’s State House correspondent, Mr. Chukwuma Onuekwusi.
Ekweremadu who described the late journalist as a thoroughbred professional, noting that his death was a huge loss, not only for Channels Television, but also the media industry and the nation in general.
He said: “I received with pain and deep sense of loss the news of the passing on of Mr. Onuekwusi. He was a thoroughbred journalist, who brought a high sense of professionalism to bear on his work. He made Channels Television reports on the Presidency authoritative and delightful for millions of Nigerians, including me.
“It is sad that he was cut down by death at the prime of his career, when he still had so much to offer the nation and her democracy. But he certainly left indelible marks on the sands of time”.
Ekweremadu prayed God to grant Onuekwusi’s family, Channels Television, and the Nigerian media industry the fortitude to bear the loss. He also prayed for the peaceful repose of the soul of the departed.
