The Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) has expressed shock over the death of the editor of the Port Harcourt-based, The Tide Newspaper, Mrs. Juliet Ejiowhor.
Mrs. Njiowhor died on Saturday after a brief illness.
She was a two – term Standing Committee member representing the Eastern Zone.
She was at the 2021 NGE Convention in Kano where she contested for the position of Treasurer.
This is in accordance with a statement signed by the President of the Guild, Mustapha Isa, a copy of which was made available to The Triumph.
Mrs. Njiowhor’s death, statement said, has robbed the Guild of a committed member who never missed any of its events since joining the organisation.
It said her death came shortly after that of our former Deputy President, Elder Esinjo Oqua Itu, in Calabar.
“The Guild takes solace in the fact that Mrs. Njiowhor served humanity with diligence in her sojourn here on Earth,” it stated.
The statement said: “We extend our condolences to her husband and children as well as the management and staff of The Tide Newspaper and the people and government of Rivers State.”
“May her soul rest in the bosom of the Lord,” it said.
According to statement, a condolence register has been opened at the Editors’ House, No. 24, Mojidi Street, Ikeja for the deceased.
