The Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, described the late editor as a thoroughbred journalist who touched the lives of many in a positive way and helped to strengthen freedom and democracy.
The forum described his death as a great loss to the journalism profession and humanity in general.
“All the titles on the Media Trust stable have become leading lights in the nation’s media industry because of the vision, commitment and hard work of seasoned professionals like the late Suleiman Mohammed and hordes of other journalists who have worked or are still working for the newspapers,” said a statement signed by Mr. Aliyu’s spokesperson, Danladi Ndayebo.
The statement expressed the hope that the generation of journalists who benefited from the immense knowledge and managerial acumen of the late editor will continue to nurture and sustain the high standards that were set by Mr. Suleiman.
