TJAA, a group of old students of Times Journalism Institute (TJI) Lagos, recalled that Prof Oso was in the academic faculty of TJI in the 1990s.

Reacting to the news of Prof. Oso’s death, TJAA president, Mr. Clifford Agugoesi, described it as huge shock as he will be greatly missed by journalism industry.

Agugoesi, who also is the Editor of CyberEra, prayed for the repose of late Prof. Oso’s soul and fortitude to the family he left behind including members of TJAA who will miss him dearly.

Former TJI Director, Dr. Ndubuisi Ugbede in his condolence message, said Prof. Oso was a renowned trainer whose readiness to offer a helping hand especially in mass communication matters, not minding the inconveniences cannot be over-emphasised.

Former Tourism Editor at Champion Newspapers, Pastor Ifeanyi Uhuegbu, noted that late professor taught them in the Post-Graduate Diploma class, recalling Prof. Oso’s two books that blessed and enriched them while at TJI.

“ May our good God through His holy spirit comfort his beloved ones left behind,” Uhuegbu said.

Equally, another old student, Mr. Olamiju Oretola of 1995 set of TJI, said it was a privilege to have passed through late Prof Oso at the institute, “he was a facilitator in media training” and prayed for eternal peace for his departed soul.

Further, TJAA recollected that late Prof. Oso was a communication and media studies teacher, rising to the post of Deputy Rector at the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta and later moved to the Postgraduate School of Communication at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State where he served as a Professor of Communications and later, the Lagos State University, Ojo just to mention a few of his academic career.

He died at the age of 67 years in a motor accident along Abraka, Delta State on his way to Lagos after a conference. He is survived by a wife and children.
