The Newspaper Proprietors’ Association of Nigeria (NPAN) has expressed shock over the death of Prince Emeka Obasi.

Obasi until his death was the publisher of Business Hallmark Newspapers, which he established in 2009 after he had sold National Mirror to billionaire businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim, in 2008.

He died Wednesday in Lagos, according to his family.

NPAN in a condolence letter signed by its President, Malam Kabiru Yusuf, and addressed to the deceased wife, Betty, described the former Abia Commissioner for Information, Culture, and Tourism as a quintessential journalist and media guru.

“Though Prince Obasi died at his prime, we are consoled by the enviable legacies he left within and outside our esteemed industry and the nation at large.

“We cannot but recall his establishment of the National Mirror Newspapers, which he nurtured to the point that it attracted the attention of billionaire businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim, who bought it over,” NPAN said.

Obasi was born in Umuahia, Abia State. He attended the University of Calabar, where he studied English.

He is survived by his wife and Children: Emeka (jnr), Onyedikachi, Kamsi and Miracle.
