“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years”. Abraham Lincoln
The sad news of the passing away of our dear friend Mr. Dele Agekameh on the 10th of October 2019, was a rude shock. Dele was a friend and a close associate to lot of people in different walks of life.
He was a consummate and award winning investigative journalist who distinguished himself in his chosen carrier. A prolific writer and columnist, his glittering career traversed several media houses from the Champion Newspapers, Tell and The Nation Newspapers until his demise. As a founding member of the National Think Tank and other numerous associations that Dele was a member of (see full list below). Dele meant many things to us as a friend, associate and professional colleague.
Dele’s final rites of passage as announced by the family will commence with the wake keep at his residence in Lagos. As friends of our beloved Dele, it is our duty to provide a shoulder for the family he left behind to lean on by encouraging them to be strong at this very difficult time. According to Chuck Palahniuk” We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will”.
