BIOGRAPHY AND CAUSE OF DEATH: Veteran broadcaster and writer, Timawus Mathias, has died at the age of 73

Veteran broadcaster and writer, Timawus Mathias, has died at the age of 73.

A family member, Jiji Mathias, made the announcement in a Facebook post today, September 9, 2022.

His death followed protracted ill-health.

He recently came out of a 5-week coma in August and took to Facebook to share the news of his ill-health and miraculous recovery.

He is survived by his wife, three sons, and one daughter.

Mathias was born on 5th December 1948. He started out as a broadcaster with the Nigerian Television Authority Yola before going into private practice in the media space spanning over five decades.

In 2018, President Muhammadu Buhari celebrated Mathias on his 70th birthday.

The governor described the demise of Mr Mathias as shocking. He eulogized the late veteran journalist, who worked with with Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), as a patriotic Nigerian who served the country diligently in various capacities.

“We will forever cherish Chief Mathias’ oratory and comportment on Television as well as his commitment to the service of our beloved State and Country.

“His diligence and skills earned him the recognition of the NTA Yola station named after him. He held the traditional title of the official spokesperson of the paramount Monarch of the Bachama Kingdom and the most preferred compere at national events,” the governor said.

Mr Fintiri said the deceased devoted a lifetime to the service of God and humanity.
