The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ondo state Council has thanked Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for appointing one of its Senior members from the state information chapel, Mrs Julie Fayehun, as a Permanent Secretary in the state civil service by .

In a press statement by the NUJ, state Chairman, Adetona Aderoboye and the secretary, Leke Adegbite, in their reaction said:

“We received the news of Mrs Fayeun’s appointment with great joy and full appreciation to Almight God, Mr Governor and the State Head of Service, Mr Oluwadare Aragbaiye.

“They did not disappoint us as we consistently reminded the governor in all our public Statements, private engagements and official letters to him and the HoS of the need to break this terrible jinx. We believe in the capacity of Mrs Fayeun that she will deliver.”

The Union says considering over 15 years of marginalization of Journalists and Information officers in the state public service in the appointment of Permanent secretaries, it is pertinent to express deep gratitude to Governor Akeredolu who promised to correct the injustice and today he has fulfilled his pledge made in November, 2019 when received Ondo NUJ Best Governor’s Award at an event held at the Press Centre, Akure.

Ondo NUJ also commended the consistency and straightforwardness of the State Head of Service, Mr Aragbaiye who had continuously been assuring the Union’s leadership of the determination of the government to right the wrong against Journalists and Information managers in the state.

“We will not forget as well the roles played by the HoS and the Organised Labour especially NLC Chairman, Comrade Sunday Adeleye-Oluwole in this appointment and approval of WEIGH-IN ALLOWANCE for our members last year.”

The NUJ also congratulated Mrs Fayehun who is the most senior member in the state Ministry of Information on her appointment, while appealing to her to justify the confidence reposed in her by the government and indeed the entire NUJ leadership in the state.

“This appointment is so significant that it will further encourage our members to put in their best in the service of the state, knowing fully well that they will surely get to the Zenith of their career,” the Union opined.

Ondo NUJ also pleaded with Governor Akeredolu to consider other qualified Directors in the state Ministry of Information, OSRC and the Information Department at local government level for future appointment.
