President Muhammadu Buhari congratulates a veteran journalist and former Minister of Information and Culture, Prince Tony Momoh, on his 78th birthday.
In a press statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi, Adesina, the President described Momoh as “the cerebral statesman whose career in journalism, as an editor and administrator, covers some of the most dramatic, and defining moments of Nigeria’s history.”
Buhari extolled the courage, versatility and nobility that the former minister has exuded in making tough and selfless decisions for the benefit of the nation.
He listed such decisions to include choosing to serve with opposition parties, like All Nigeria Peoples’ Party and Congress for Progressive Change, with all the odds.
“President Buhari recalls with delight his many insightful encounters with the septuagenarian over the years, affirming that Momoh will always be remembered for his unalloyed support for the truth that culminated in the electoral victory of 2015.
“He prays that God will grant the former minister longer life, good health and more wisdom to serve his community and the country,” the statement read.
