Disregard Amosu's Ranting On Isiguzo, He's A Drowning Man - Taiwo Tells Journalists In Ogun

The Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the Ogun State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Com Kayode Taiwo, on Thursday evening urged journalists in the state to disregard the ranting of Com. Soji Amosu on the National President of the Union, Com. Chris Isiguzo, and his planned tour of the Ogun Council.

Kayode said members of the Union are eager to welcome the National President to the state because of the strategic place of the Council in Southwest, dismissing Amosu as a " drowning man" "desperate to tarnish the image of the Journalists in Ogun State."

This followed calls earlier today by Amosu on Ogun NUJ members to boycott any planned reception for Isiguzo in the state.

But in a release sighted by The Daily Crucible, the Caretaker Committee Chairman stated that Amosu's recourse to calling on Governor Dapo Abiodun not to receive the NUJ President remains the height of arrogance and disrespect for the office of the Governor, wondering  when it becomes the responsibility of a member of a Union to determine who the Governor receives or not.

Kayode stated: "The attention of the Caretaker Committee of the Ogun State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists has been drawn to the statement made by Mr Soji Amosu of National Orientation Chapel on the visit the President of NUJ to Ogun State.

"We never considered responding to this gross insensitivity on the part of a man who has spent twelve years continuously as top officer in the State describing the official visit of the President as one that will not bring good to Ogun State Council, perhaps you need to find out what the experiences of several State Councils already visited.

"Contrary to your opinion, this is long overdue as Ogun State is an important part of Zone B, (South West) and majority of the decent and committed practitioners in our State are eager to receive Mr President, just hold your peace, sincerely, we are not joining issues with you or anyone else, we know Journalists, we know pretenders.

"I have never seen anyone with proper reasoning, that will build a house and because the fence is faulty, pulls down the entire building.

"We will like to let the discerning Public know that you and your cohorts have engaged in this blackmail and Character assassination, particularly on the President, is born out of your desperation to assume a position you need to have a clean win.

"To denigrate the office the President is to show your lack of respect and humility, I wonder what your response will be if you are in his position, yet you wanted to be a Chairman under the leadership of President, Chief Chris Isiguzo, I can't imagine.

"Calling on the Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun not to receive the President is height of arrogance and disrespect for the office of the Governor, I wonder when it becomes the responsibility of a member of a Union to determine who the Governor receives or not.

"I want to use this medium to implore all members of the Union to disregard the ranting of the drowning man who is desperate to tarnish the image of the Journalists in Ogun State.

"We assure the President of the readiness of the State Council to welcome our President to the Cradle of Journalism in Nigeria, Ogun State is home to decent Nigerians ditto for Journalists practicing here."
