LKJ: A giant has fallen -Osoba

Frontline journalist and former governor of Ogun State, Aremo Olusegun Osoba has likened the death of former Lagos State governor, Alhaji Lateef Jakande to the fallen of “an Iroko tree, as well as an elephant”.

Osoba said the late Jakande would be remembered as a personification of the best in journalism and a political colossus.

According to the former Ogun State governor, Alhaji Jakande “singlehandedly founded both the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigeria and the Nigerian Institute of Journalism.

“He was the first black African chairman of the International Press Institute made up of publishers and editors all over the world,” Osoba said.
