By Our Correspondent

Energy journalists in Africa have bemoaned the death of their colleague, publisher of Nigerian NewsDirect, Dr. Samuel Ibiyemi, who died on July 4, 2023, at Babcock University Teaching Hospital, Ilisan-Remo after a brief illness. He was aged 56.

Since the news of his passage was made known, many social media platforms have been filled with several comments and expressions by colleagues, who will him greatly.

However, in a statement obtained by The Daily, www.thedaily-ng.com, his family, stated: “With deep sorrow in our hearts and total submission to the will of God, we announce the death, of our father, uncle, and Publisher of Nigerian NewsDirect, Dr. Samuel Ibiyemi, which sad event occurred on July 4, 2023, at Babcock University Teaching Hospital, Ilisan-Remo after a brief illness. He was aged 56.

“We had thought that a beautiful and loving soul that the great Ife Prince would be with us for a long while, but it has pleased the Almighty God, the unquestionable one to take him home for a deserved rest.

“Dr Samuel Ibiyemi, was a thoroughbred journalist, a servant of God, and had even started out in life as a soldier with Nigerian Air Force before veering into journalism.

“He established Nigerian NewsDirect about 13 years ago and the paper has continued to be one of the leading newspapers in the country contributing to the expansion of the socio-economic development of the nation.

“Aside from being a loving father and very caring boss to his staff and younger colleagues, Dr Ibiyemi was humility personified and a cheerful giver.

“He was no doubt a colossus of some sort who bestrode the media world during his lifetime.

“In a submission to God, he planted Great Grace Apostolic Church, Gasline, Sango-Ota about four years back and was the presiding minister until he breathed his last. May his loving and caring soul rest in peace.”
