Nigeria‘s number one man, President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned the passing of Chief Timawus Mathias.

He condoled with the Government and people of Adamawa State over the passing of Chief Timawus Mathias said to be an illustrious son of the state.

Mathias died on Friday at the age of 73.

He served the country as a broadcaster, writer and media consultant for more than fifty years.

Reacting to the sad news, Buhari shared the pain of the loss with family members, particularly his wife of close to five decades, Betty, the Hama Bachama and the Bachama Council where he holds the title of a spokesman, friends and professional colleagues in the media.

This was disclosed in a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President.

The President extolled Chief Mathias for dedicating his life to service of the country, starting out at a young age with the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, before moving to the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, and hitting the limelight with Verdict 83 in 1983.

Buhari believed the multi-talented journalist, whose versatility stretched into music, contributed to the vibrancy and dynamism of Nigerian media, remaining relevant in writing columns for newspapers and treads on social media while providing expert guidance on communication to many public and private institutions.

The President affirmed that the veteran journalist, who has two media stations in Yola, NTA and AIT, named after him, will always be remembered for the value he added to the lives of many, at home and abroad.

He, however, prayed to Almighty God to accept the soul of Chief Mathias and comfort his family.
