The news of the sudden passing away of Mallam Ibrahim Abdulaziz came to me as a rude shock this evening.
This is a man I know and respect because of his humility, dedication to duty, and honesty. Ibrahim as I usually called him has always been available each time I sent my articles to him for reviews before publication. He will always gladly attend to my request promptly and efficiently without any complaints.
For all the years I have known him, Mallam Ibrahim Abdulaziz has never asked me for either a Golden handshake or patronage. These attributes, I find rare from my experience with lots of people in his type of profession. I can confidently vouch for Mallam Ibrahim Abdulaziz as an honest, God fearing, and incorruptible personality in Journalism in Nigeria.
May God in his infinite mercies grant him Aljanatul Fidausi and his loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss.
