In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Olufunmilayo Wakama, the governor said that the re-election was a demonstration of his exemplary leadership qualities and the confidence reposed in him by members of the Guild. He charged the re-elected president to continue to ensure strict adherence to the Code of Ethics and maintain the high standards of the Journalism profession.

 

The governor also felicitated with other elected and re-elected officials, including Sun’s General Editor, Mrs. Funke Egbemode, Mr Steve Ayorinde and Victoria Ibanga, a former editor at Champion newspapers.

 

"For the returning officials, it goes to show that you must have performed exceptionally well for you to have been returned unopposed. Just like I tell people, hard work pays, the people are watching and will always speak with their votes when the time comes".

 

Amosun, who noted the developmental role of the media in the just concluded general elections, applauded the NGE for its peaceful election and successful hosting of the 2015 Biennial Convention.
