Ex-Information minister, Tony Momoh, is dead



A former Minister of Information, Prince Tony Momoh, has died.

He served as minister under Gen. Ibrahim Babangida and was famous for his ‘Letters to My Countrymen,’ which sought to explain policies and programmes of the junta.

He was a staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari and some years ago reportedly urged Nigerians to stone officials of the administration if it fails to deliver on campaign promises.
