Daniel mourns with Aboderin family, Punch management


Former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has expressed shock over the passing of Chairman of Punch Nigeria Limited. Mr. Wale Aboderin.

In his condolence message to the Aboderin family, yesterday, Daniel described Wale’s death as “incomprehensible and very painful at such a youthful age.”

According to his media aide, Ayo Giwa, Daniel said: “It is with great shock that I received the news of the death of the Chairman, Punch Nigeria Limited, Mr. Wale Aboderin, a man of uncommon courage, hardwork, vision and integrity, who made his mark in the media, sports and philanthropy during his lifetime.

“It is very saddening and incomprehensible to hear of the terrible loss at such a youthful age when he was still active and full of noble ideas and dreams. He kept the light of Aboderin dynasty aglow with his unique style of management, taking the tabloid, Punch, to an enviable height and made it primus inter pares.


“The media world and indeed the whole nation in general has lost a great son, but we take solace in his charming life and the wonderful legacies he left behind.”

The former governor, on behalf of his family, offered his deepest sympathy and prayed that God grants the deceased eternal rest and gives the family, management and staff of Punch Nigeria Limited the fortitude to bear the loss.
