Shittu commiserates with Oyo NUJ, BCOS, family, over Alawaye’s death

Minister of Communications, Barr. Abdur-Raheem Adebayo Shittu has commiserated with the Oyo State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), management and staff of the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State (BCOS), family of the late Alhaji Tunji Alawaye, over the death of the ace broadcaster, reports ITRealms.

The minister in a press release by his Special Assistant on Media, Victor Oluwadamilare, said the journalism profession has lost a brilliant journalist, adding that the death of Alawaye is a great loss to the broadcast industry.

According to the minister, “ Alhaji Tunji Alawaye died at a time when his services could be sought after by the numerous newly opened private radio stations in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State and other neighboring states”.

“Experienced old hands like the late Alawaye serve as a veritable recruiting ground for newly opened fm stations that has make the broadcast industry in Ibadan and environ competitive, but it is unfortunate that the cold hands of death snatched him away at this period in time”.

“There is nothing we can do but to submit to the will of Almighty Allah who created us all and has the power to take us at his will. We beg Allah to grant his soul a repose and grant him Aljanah fridous . We pray Allah to give his wives, children and other members of the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss”.

Meanwhile, the minister admonished journalists to always submit themselves to medical check -up periodically to forestall harbouring terminal diseases like high blood pressure and heart related problems due to the nature of their job.

Barr. Shittu also urged the management of the BCOS and NUJ Oyo State chapter to take heart, while he prayed that Allah will put an end to sudden death in their midst.

During that thread it was pointed out that the church opted not to operate a facebook page and so several congregants began and administer the page. There seemed to be a lot of folks who were surprised or had forgotten that the page was unofficial.

  2. Without knowing the backstory of Clapton's son's death inspiring such a beautiful lyric of loss, one would underestimate the depth of grief packed into the poetry. As romantic lyric-- which it is entirely possible to be interpreted-- it is quite ordinary, indeed, bordering on the sentimental, but as a grieving father's vision of a dead child it is exquisitely, and most achingly sublime. And this is also a grown man's psychological response to loss that is irreparable.
