President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday expressed grief over the sad news of the untimely death of Mr. Dimgba Igwe, Vice Chairman of the Sun Newspapers.

In a statement made available to newsmen yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, the President on behalf of himself, his family and the Federal Government of Nigeria, extended heartfelt commiserations to the publishers of the Sun newspapers, the Nigerian Guild of Editors, and all friends and associates of Mr. Igwe, for whom his unexpected death must be exceedingly painful.

He said “President Jonathan believes that the late Mr. Igwe will always be remembered as a hardworking and dependable professional, who, through his various writings as columnist, author and public speaker, demonstrated a special ability to convey the truth and his convictions in lucid, compelling prose, and in a style that was shorn of cant and foppery.”

Jonathan enjoined the family of the deceased, his friends and associates to be consoled by the knowledge that he put his God given abilities to the best possible use in a  era purposeful life.
