President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family and friends of the first actor to play the role of the Village Headmaster, Ted Mukoro, who died on Wednesday at the age of 89.

The president’s condolence message is contained in a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja by Mr Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

The president  extended his condolences to the entire Nollywood family and the advertising community over the loss of the renowned thespian, advertiser and voice talent.

He noted that Mukoro, who was one of the pioneers of radio drama at the Western Nigeria Broadcasting Service (WNBS) and Western Nigeria Television (WNTV), had spent all his life promoting effective communication, good entertainment and healthy community relations.

The president also  commended the late Mukoro for contributing to the development of theatre in Nigeria  and sustaining his interest in acting,  even in old age by participating in Nollywood movies.

He  affirmed that the advertising industry in Nigeria benefitted from the copywriting skills and structuring of attractive narratives by the late actor  who also mentored many younger Nigerians.

The president prayed that God would accept the soul of the departed  and comfort the family he left behind.
