President Muhammadu Buhari felicitates with frontline journalist and columnist, Chief Duro Onabule, as he turns 81 September 27, 2020.
The President, in a statement by Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), lauded Onabule’s more than 50 years contribution to journalism and incisive public commentary, which has gone a long way to inform and educate the public, and shape government policies and programmes.
“I am glad that like old wine, Chief Onabule tastes better daily,” President Buhari said, urging him to continue sharing knowledge and expertise with younger generations of journalists, “who have a lot to learn from a committed professional.”
Onabule, Chief Press Secretary to military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd) for eight years, was Editor of National Concord (now defunct), before going to serve in government. He is currently Chairman of the Board of Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).
The President, Adesina said, wishes him longer life in good health and prosperity.
