President Muhammadu Buhari rejoiced with CNN African Journalist of the Year 2006 winner Mr. Shola Oshunkeye as he turns 65 on April 20, 2021.
In a congratulatory message from his spokesperson, Mr. Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Monday, Buhari praised Oshunkeye’s professional progress, accumulated over more than three decades.
Oshunkeye had worked with media houses like Concord Press, where he rose to edit the then top-selling Concord Weekend; Associate Editor at TELL Magazine; editor of The Spectator, a publication of The Sun Publishing Limited; and Managing Director / Editor-in-Chief of The Sun Ghana.
Buhari rejoiced with the Oshunkeye family, the media fraternity and all those celebrating the renowned journalist, who also won the Nigerian Media Merit Award for Best Print Journalist in 1996.
The president, however, urged Oshunkeye to continue to share his knowledge and experience with the younger generation of journalists.
