“The tribe of great journalists in Nigeria has again been depleted by this sudden and most heartbreaking death,” Tinubu said.
“It is indeed a sad day for the Nigerian media and all those that were associated with Dimgba. He was a thorough-bred journalist and writer, who remained steadfast and lifted The Sun newspapers to a position of reckoning.”
The former Lagos State Governor described the circumstances of Dimgba’s passing away as painful and avoidable. He also added that the loss saddened him deeply.
“I knew Dimgba personally and respected his professional contributions to building our country,” Tinubu said.
“I recall vividly my several encounters with him. I remember Dimgba and Mike Awoyinfa chasing me down and interviewing me for close to three hours on the book they were writing on Lagos State and the post-military era development. It was an enjoyable experience. He will be dearly missed.
“My condolences go out to his wife and family and all relatives. I pray God will grant them strength for this period and peace in abundance.”
