- He said “I retired from Vanguard Newspaper on June 2, 2019, after several years of being in the field. I worked in several newspapers such as This Day, Punch, Daily Star, Satellite among others. I was a stringer for the New Nigerian Newspaper, NNN, following an introduction by Okenwa Bala Ugwu, based on an instruction from Chief Maduka Ugwu, who was the News Editor, South of the Federal Government-owned newspaper.
Late Steve Okorie was the man in charge in Enugu. I spent more years in Vanguard where I retired. I am known more as being part of Vanguard than the other newspapers.
