Akeredolu: We Sacked The Drunkards, Blackmailers And Gamblers — Not Journalists (Read Press Statement)
This is nothing but deliberate mischief sponsored by some meddlesome interlopers and their hirelings who were screened out of the Governor’s press corps.
My office was inundated with serial complaints about professional misconduct by some ‘journalists’ who turned the newsroom in the Governor’s office to beer parlour, gambling station and blackmailers hideout. Some of these complaints were investigated and were found out to be true.
In fact, I have received complaints from some important guests who were made to pay for interviews and news items that were never used on any channel.
Duly signed official letters are usually sent to the broadcast stations headquarters to convey our intentions to their managements. Our last official communication with the stations was in April 2017.
For instance, in the last one year, the Channels TV’s reporters here have not filed a single story on the activities of the Governor, either positive or negative. I challenge them to contradict this position. Yet the ‘journalists’ stay in the Governor’s office from morning to night every day. Doing what?
