I mourn the death of Ladi Lawal. He was the Group Managing Director of DAAR Communications, owners of AIT, AFRICAN INDEPENDENT TELEVISION.
Ladi Lawal WAS a symbol of the Nigerian struggle for real democracy and emancipation of the masses. He worked tirelessly and endlessly to contribute to the development of journalism and sports in Nigeria.
I would not to able to highlight all of his achievements and contributions here. His life is worth documenting in a book for posterity to learn from.
Condolence have poured in from all the four corners of Nigeria and even from France and the United States through the US Embassy in Nigeria.
His death is a real blow and a tragedy to Nigeria.
May Ladi’s soul find peace.
