President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned journalist, poet, author and sports administrator, Otunba Eddie Aderinokun, who passed on January 3, 2021, aged 80.

President Buhari, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, condoled with the family, friends, the media, and sporting fraternity.

The President urged them to strive to keep Otunba Aderinokun’s memory alive.

Buhari saluted the more than 60 years of vibrant journalism  practice by Aderinokun, which saw him rise to the editorship of the then reputable Daily Express Newspaper, and his contribution to literature through many books, particularly on poetry.

“Also unforgettable are his footprints in sports development, particularly volleyball, where he made his mark as a very successful Chairman of the Nigerian Volleyball Federation,” President Buhari said.

The President also hailed the fact that Aderinokun, as President of Nigeria League of Veteran Journalists, shared his wealth of experience, and guided younger professionals on the path of ethics and good conduct, adding that all these would be recorded in his favour by posterity.
