The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condoled with the management and staff of The Sun over the death, in very tragic circumstances, of Pastor Dimgba Igwe, on Saturday, saying with his death, Nigerian journalism has lost a shining star.
In a statement in Lagos, Saturday, by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party also condoled with the
family and friends of the late Pastor Igwe, and prayed that God will give them the strength to bear their loss.
It expressed shock and sadness at the sudden death of such a vibrant,cerebral and wonderful person, who has been a constant star in the
constellation of Nigerian journalism for decades, without compromising his personal and professional integrity.
APC called on the police to find and bring to justice the driver of the vehicle that knocked down Pastor Igwe while he was jogging around his residence.
”Words are not enough to describe the huge loss, to his family, friends, profession and indeed our entire nation, that Igwe’s death
represents. But we are sure the achievements he recorded in his lifetime will forever be a source of pride – and indeed a soothing
balm – to all.
”May the good Lord grant repose to his soul and comfort those he left behind,” the party prayed.
