The cleric reading from Nehemiah 13: 14 in the Bible enjoined those in power of authority to serve well, impact life the way and manner of the late academic did, stressing that he lived his life for many people, noting that he had opportunity   to make money, but allowed self-contentment to be his watchword

‘For the immediate family of the late erudite scholar, his sudden and painful passage, nothwithstanding his indelible contributions and mark in the field of communication will for long remain a pacesetter difficult to be matched’’, he said

‘Oso was there for all day and night. For me, it is understatement to say that, he lived, breathed and bequeathed an impactful journalism development life which transcend to the facets of humanity. Adieu, great teacher of teachers’, Achudume stated
