By John Odunjo

Ekiti State Commissioner for Information, Hon Taiwo Olatunbosun, has solicited support of the Online Media Chapel of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ekiti State Council, for the Governor Biodun Oyebanji government.

Olatunbosun, who said that his office would operate in line with the ethics of the journalism profession, urged members of the online chapel to support the Oyebanji administration to achieve its six-point agenda.

The commissioner spoke in his office in Ado Ekiti while playing host to members of the online chapel, who paid him a courtesy visit.

Olatunbosun said, “We have an enlarged Excos to execute the six-point agenda of Governor Biodun Oyebanji.

“I want to appeal and request for your continuous support, patronage and relationship. I want you to be fair in your reportage, we will not do anything outside of the norms.

“I have gone through your request, we will give you due recognition. I will do whatever is possible, reasonably, to put into process some of the issues you raised”.

Olatunbosun said that his office would work in tandem with the online practitioners, saying their exploration into digitalisation had made them outstanding among conventional and non-conventional practitioners.

Chairman of the chapel, Comrade Ayodele Abere, who congratulated Olatunbosun on his appointment,
expressed readiness to partner with the state government in the projection of its activities, policies and programmes.

Abere said the online practitioners deserved due recognition from the state government in coverage of events and other areas, adding, “Online Media Chapel is the future of journalism. Partnership with the state government will boost the reportage strength of the government activities”.
