I commend you for maintaining a high standard of journalism – Pres Buhari Greets Félix Onuah on 60th birthday
President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Felix Onuah, one of the longest serving State House correspondents, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
Onuah was first assigned to cover the State House in 1991 and since then has continued on the job for several media organizations.
In 32 years, he has had the rare privilege of reporting eight Heads of State and Government, from Dodan Barracks, Lagos to Aso Rock, Abuja, beginning from General Ibrahim Babangida to President Buhari.
As a government that values the importance of press freedom and freedom of expression to democracy, the President commended the State House correspondent for Reuters World News Agency for maintaining a high standard of journalism over the years through objective and informed reporting, free from any political interference.
The President trusts that the versatile journalist, who is a calm and courageous voice among his colleagues in the State House Press Corps, will continue with the remarkable legacy of delivering news about Nigeria and the seat of government with insight, integrity, balance and knowledge.
President Buhari joins family, friends, colleagues and members of the State House Press Corps in wishing the veteran journalist with 36 years of experience more prosperous years in health and vitality.
