Family Organises Fidau For Deceased Journalist
It is a common saying that sweet is the memory of the godly.
This maxim became a reality as professional journalists in Oyo State, staff of Guardian Newspaper, neighbours, families and friends of Late Alhaji Nojeem Raheem converged on Goshen, Ilupeju Apete for the eight day Fidau organized for the deceased.
Addressing the audience, Chief Imam, Jamade Central Mosque, Apete, Alhaji Ibrahim Oladejo said Late Alhaji Raheem lived a fulfilled life through his closeness to God and exemplary life.
Alhaji Oladejo implored the congregation to eschew evil and maintain a healthy relationship with God and the people around them as they would give account of their sojourn on the day of reckoning.
Some members of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, to whom Late Alhaji Nojeem Raheem belonged, lauded the impactful life of the deceased and urged members of the Union to be professionally, morally and socially responsible as demonstrated by their late colleague.
In an interview, the daughter of Late Alhaji Raheem, Miss Barakat Raheem said her father was a caring man who taught them the way of Allah, humility and diligence.
Miss Barakat, who appreciated the guests for the show of love, appealed for more prayers for the family members left behind.
Until his death, Late Alhaji Raheem was the photo editor with The Guardian Newspaper, Lagos.
