The President also condoled with the media industry, especially the broadcast sector, ”where Olasope shone brilliantly with Nigeria and Africa’s first TV station, Western Nigeria Television, WNTV, becoming a house-hold name.”

Buhari believed the veteran broadcaster’s contribution to media practice would always be remembered, ”and the focus of the programmes he anchored, which were mostly educational and informative, will remain relevant and inspiring.”

The President prayed that the almighty God would receive the soul of the departed and comfort his family.
