He said that he will always cherish his support and words of encouragement to go for it.

Hon Yakubu described the late Esogban who passed on at the age of 93 as an oracle, Journalist of great repute, a traditionalist and an erudite politician who spoke truth to power always in the defence of the people.

He prayed God to grant his gentle soul peaceful repose in his bosom and grant his immediate, extended families, friends and well-wishers the fortitude to bear this great loss.
