The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Ondo State Council, has joined well-meaning Nigerians and corporate organisations to felicitate the Union’s National President, CHIEF CHRISTOPHER ISIGUZO and the Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin OLUWAROTIMI ODUNAYO AKEREDOLU, SAN, on conferment of National Award as a Member of the Order of the Federal Republic, MFR and the Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON) respectively.
In a Press Statement signed by the State Chairman of the Union, Prince Leke Adegbite and the Secretary, Comrade Olaoluwa Meshack, Ondo NUJ expresses delight that Chief Isiguzo who as number One Journalist in Nigeria and recently in Africa, has distinguished himself in many paths to deserve a National Honour at this time.
“We the entire journalists in the Sunshine State are proud to associate with your accomplishments and vibrant leadership that earned you this huge award. You are one of the few National Presidents of industrial or Professional unions who receive the nation’s National Honours while in office; This clearly attests to your great leadership qualities.
“We pray Lord to continue to uphold you to serve humanity and our country in many higher positions in years to come Our loving National President.”
Ondo NUJ equally congratulates the State Governor, Arakunrin Akeredolu, who is our GRAND PATRON, on the occasion of receiving National Honour from President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday 11th October, 2022.
“No doubt that even your adversaries know and agree that you deserve to be honoured for your bold, uncommon activism and unrelenting leadership that you have been providing as the Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum and the Southwest Governors’ Forum; especially on the need to protect the citizenry from bandits and other criminals terrorising the nation through the formation of Amotekun Corps and support to other security agencies.
“It is our sincere belief at Ondo NUJ that these National Honours of CON and MFR will spur both our Brave Governor and our National President to do more for the nation and humanity generally.”
