The Northern Media Forum on Thursday condoled with the family of the Late Editor-in-Chief of the News Agency of Nigeria, Wada Maida and the entire media industry in the country.

The forum’s chairman, Dan Agbese, in a statement, described Maida as “doyen of journalism” who would be greatly missed in the industry and the country at large.

Maida died Monday night in Abuja.

Agbese said: “Wada Maida was an accomplished and thorough-bred professional who symbolized decency and ethical journalism, and lived by those tenets.”

He added that Maida never wavered from the straight and narrow path that ethical journalism is all about.

Agbese stated that Maida “worked and lived the media, having been part of the founding of Daily Trust and served on the board of International Press Institute and at one time the president of the Nigerian Guild of Editors.

“He was also an active member of the Newspapers Proprietors Association of Nigeria. For us at the NMF, Wada Maida’s excellence shone brightly, as a founding member and one of its intellectual think-tank.

“We remember him as one of a few working quietly to uplift the media industry in the service of the society and the country at large. We therefore implore his family to take solace in his good works and footprints.”
