Tony Momoh for burial February 11


The remains of former Minster of Information and Culture, Prince Tony Momoh, will be committed to mother earth on February 11, 2021.

In a statement issued by Momoh”s first son, Abdulrasheed Momoh, the Family said the deceased would be interred at the Grail Land Iju Hills, Lagos on February 11th 2021.

His grandson, Esivwe Momoh, told The Guardian, “As if he knew it was time, he told us shortly before he passed on that he was going for spiritual check up. 


“We still spoke on Monday morning and he told us he was fine, but returning from work in the evening, we got the news. He trained, imparted and mentored me. He lived by example, he never spoilt us. He always told us to be focused. He was highly accommodating to every class—poor, old and young. He was always there to help and support everybody around him. He wanted us to achieve our own success. He would tell us that time waits for no man. Anything you want to do, do it on time. He was a man of few words but those words carried weight.”

Paying their tributes, Prince Aderemi Iyiola and wife wrote in the condolence register: “May your goodness to humankind guide your soul.” 

Similarly, Patrick Adedoyin wrote: “He was a very humble man, a man of peace that loved everybody he knew.”  Professor of Mass Communication, Idowu Shobowale, said: “Nigeria has lost a giant. He gave all his best to the media industry. We pray that God should stop the spirit of sudden death among our giants. May his soul rest in peace.”

Similarly, Professor of Journalism and Mass Communication, Ralph Akinfeleye, said: “it is a big calamity to the profession of journalism, Mass Communication, Nigerian Press Council and Nigerian Media Merit Award. He was a good thinker who believed Nigeria would survive.”
