As the remains of late Channels Television Correspondent for the State House, Chukwuma Onuekwusi, was laid to rest on Friday, July 14, President Muhammadu Buhari and the entire staff of the Presidential Villa have joined other Nigerians to mourn the departed broadcaster.
The Permanent Secretary State House, Jalal Arabi, in a letter addressed to Mr. Chidiebere Onuekwusi of Akabo in Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo State, said for the ten years that Chukwuma served as a correspondent for the tv station, he exhibited uncommon dedication, professionalism, and patriotism to work.
The letter reads: I write on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari and the entire staff of the State House, to condole you and members of Onuekwusi family on the transition of your father, Mr. Chukwuma Onuekwusi.
“It is on record that for the ten years that Chukwuma served as a Correspondent for Channels Television reporting Nigerian Presidents, he exhibited uncommon dedication, professionalism, and patriotism at work, and was not found wanting in any respect.
“His passage has therefore left a huge vacuum which will be difficult to fill as covering the State House requires maturity, integrity, and hard work.
“While the Presidency joins you in mourning him, I enjoin you to take solace in the fact that Chukwuma was a respected journalist and pride to the family, employers, the journalism profession and the nation.
“I pray that Almighty God will console his family, friends and professional colleagues and grant Chukwuma’s soul peaceful rest.”
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
