The Honorable Minister of Youth and Sports Development Mr. Sunday Dare has condoled with the sport writers Association of Nigeria, Abuja Chapter and the family of Segun Ogunjimi over his death.
A statement by the Minister said “I received the news of Segun Ogunjimi’s death with utmost shock and sadness in my heart. He was not just a dedicated journalist, but someone I knew personally because of his zeal and commitment to the activities of the Ministry.
He was so passionate about his job, full of life and vigor. He was one of the few journalists I took personal note of on assuming office due to his unrivalled professionalism and dedication to duty.
I recall that last year he was in my office for my birthday celebration where I granted him an exclusive interview and we took personal pictures. it’s so unfortunate that we have lost a great journalist in Segun Ogunjimi, but we cannot question God.
I commiserate with his wife, son, extended family and the entire SWAN members on this sad incident. My prayer is that God grants the family and the sports community the fortitude to bear this huge loss. May his soul rest in peace”.
