Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has described as a sad loss, the death of Vanguard’s ace columnist, Chief Pini Jason.
In a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Peter Okhiria, Comrade Oshiomhole said: “Pini Jason was a quintessential writer in a class of his own. He was a wordsmith who used the right coinages to convey his message which the high and low found endearing.
“I always looked forward to reading his robust and incisive columns in the Vanguard every week, as he always had something new and refreshing to offer. His death is a big blow not only to the journalism profession but to all of us, his admirers.
I commiserate with Uncle Sam Amuka, the Publisher of Vanguard newspapers who, undoubtedly, has lost a good friend; the entire Vanguard family and indeed every member of the Journalism profession on this sudden loss.
I pray God to grant his immediate family the fortitude to bear the loss and for the deceased to find rest in the Lord’s bosom
