Mahmoon Baba-Ahmed was a paragon of excellence – Atiku

By Atekojo Ejima

 

Former Vice President and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar says the death of veteran broadcaster, Malam Mahmoon Baba-Ahmed, has robbed Nigerian journalism of “a first class and courageous journalist.”

In a condolence statement released by his media office in Abuja on Friday, Atiku recalled that Baba-Ahmed’s political reporting during the Second Republic “was one of finest moments of his journalistic career.”

According to Atiku, the late broadcaster impressed many radio listeners because of his courage to ask politicians tough questions, adding that such a fearless journalist should be a pride to the society because his interview style was necessary to hold leaders accountable.

The Waziri Adamawa extended his condolences to the management of Liberty TV/Radio, Blueprint Newspapers and the Baba-Ahmed family over the loss.
