MEET FRANK OSHANUGOR
By Frank Oshanugor
Contrary to the position of Delta Online Publishers Association (DOPA) which recently passed a vote of no confidence on the Chairman of Delta State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Mr. Michael Ikeogwu, the State Executive Council of the Union has passed a vote of confidence on the Ikeogwu-led State Working Committee, describing their actions in recent times as wonderful.
The SEC meeting which held on Wednesday deliberated on various issues affecting the Union and concluded that Ikeogwu and his Exco had done well, especially with the disbursement of money recently given to it by the State Government during the Quarterly Media Briefing by the Governor.
In a convivial atmosphere where members openly aired their views, some of them saw the need to pass a vote of implicit confidence on the State Working Committee to prove to detractors that the union is one and that the Exco had done well in managing the affairs of the Union.
The motion which was moved by Comrade Christian Ogoh and seconded by Comrade Abel Johngold with an amendment by Comrade Pere Botu to appreciate and commend Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for his media friendly disposition, affirmed that the State Exco acted in accordance with the Constitution of NUJ in carrying out recent actions as they affect the union.
In solidarity with the leadership of NUJ, the journalist turned Monarch and renowned member of the Delta State Council of Traditional Rulers, His Royal Majesty Monday Obukohwo Whiskey, Udurhie 1, Ovie of Idjerhe Kingdom walked into the SEC meeting where he addressed members to continue to work together in the spirit of harmony and upholding the professional ethics of the union.
He said the union had done well under the sterling leadership of Comrade Michael Ikeogwu, maintaining that he was always pleased with the comradeship exhibited by members in the interest of peace and unity.
As a father, he admonished all and sundry to work in synergy with Comrade Michael Ikeogwu to achieve needed milestone for the Union, adding that NUJ as the Fourth estate of the realm deserves better as a critical segment of the society.
Comrade Michael Ikeogwu
