    Bayo Onanuga is not and cannot be a boss. I know him to be a leader. I have worked with him, I have worked under him for good 10 years and I can only say that NAN is so lucky to have a journalism guru like him. He does not victimise, quite understanding and very much concerned about the welfare of his staff. Though, not a perfect man because there is no perfect man on earth but he is a good man. He is very accessible. He is just like late Professor Femi Sonaike, whom I worked with in Daily Times. This short piece is not written out of sentiment. What happens to The News Magazine/Pm News without him? God is on the throne. Gbenro
