Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has expressed shock and deep sorrows over the death of the Vice Chairman of the Sun Publishing Limited, late Pastor Dimgba Igwe, who died in a fatal auto accident on Saturday.
Senator Ekweremadu who described late Pastor Dimgba as a “quintessential journalist”, said the death was a “typical thunderbolt from a blue, serene, sky”.
“I am short of words to describe this sad event. Sometimes, life could be cruel beyond measure, and this is one of such instances. It is a grievous loss to not only the Sun Publishing family, but our media industry and the nation as a whole.
“Pastor Dimgba was one of the finest hands in the nation’s media industry. Besides leaving footprints of excellence on many of the nation’s leading media houses, including the Sun Publishing Limited, his regular column, “Sideview” was a prototype of excellence and professionalism.
“He was a flawless writer, a compelling analyst, and God-fearing media guru. He told the truth, as he knew it, in a sermon-like manner that held his readers addicted and spellbound. He will be highly missed.”
The Deputy President of the Senate expressed heartfelt condolences to the late journalist’s household, the Sun Publishing Limited family, and the entire Nigerian media industry. He also prayed God to grant the soul of late Dimgba a peaceful repose.
