The Congress of Nigeria Union of Journalists, Ogun State Council has called on the governments at Federal and State levels to urgently look into the Security challenges buffeting the country.
The call was contained in a Communiqué issued at the end of its monthly Congress held at the Council’s Secretariat, Iwe Irohin, Oke Ilewo, Abeokuta, Ogun State Thursday, July 29, 2021, signed by the state Chairman, Comrade Soji Amosu and the Secretary of the Council, Comrade Kunle Ewuoso.
The Congress also drew government’s attention to other inmotorable roads in the State and federal roads, with particularly concern for Lagos/Abeokuta and Sango/Idiroko roads which they wanted dualised, while thanking Federal government for the approval for the rehabilitation of Ilaro Papalanto- Sagamu interchange road.
The congress also urged the governments to urgently address infrastructural decay bedeviling the country in general and the State in particular.
On the issue of disqualification of Ten Nigerian athletes at Tokyo Olympic 2020, the Congress frowned at the development, berated the Nigerian officials and recommended that the governments should always ensure round pegs were put in round holes in order to forestall future occurrence of this shameful act.
The Congress commended various stakeholders, particularly, Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC) for the peaceful conduct of the Local Government Elections in Ogun State. However, it called on the government and the electoral umpire to improve on voters’ education so as to reduce their apathy in future elections.
