The Board, Management and Staff of National Point Newspaper identify deeply with the Naagbanton Family and board, Management and Staff of the Center for Environment Human Rights and Development, CEHRD on the demise of Comrade Patrick Naagbantaon, your esteemed Son, Husband, Father and Founder.
Patrick was a brother, valued colleague and dependable supporter of our organization and a close associate in the journalism field of over two decades. He made a mark in many areas of life.
We shall miss his inspiring words, bold moves in times of challenge, shared funs and concerns on the state of affairs in the Niger Delta and Nigeria.
The control of violence, human and environmental rights abuses were high concerns to him as well as the upliftment of the common man from the shackles of poverty and we are consoled by the fact that he these his all.
We pray the Lord to grant you the strength and fortitude to carry on in his absence.
May his large and gentle soul find eternal rest.
IbibaDonPedro, Constance Meju
