The Nigeria Union of Journalists, Ondo State Council wishes to congratulate a federal lawmaker, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo ‘BTO’, on his nomination as minister-designate of the Federal Republic Nigeria by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Hon. Tunji-Ojo, the lawmaker representing Akoko Northeast/Northwest Federal Constituency at the National Assembly is one of the ministerial nominees due for screening by the Senate.
“We have no doubt that his giant strides as a federal lawmaker with impactful projects in his federal constituency in the last four years earned him the new elevation.”
“We are more convinced that he will do well as minister considering the fact that he bagged Ondo NUJ Award of Best Performing Federal Lawmaker from the State, two years ago.
NUJ Ondo State Council expresses confidence in the ability of the minister-designate to make a difference by bringing to the State the much desired dividends of democracy from the federal level, judging by his excellent performances at the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
Similarly, NUJ, Ondo State Council also congratulates one of its Life Patrons, Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye on his recent appointment as the Substantive Chairman of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and Second Vice President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
