INEC 'Romances' Women Journalists In Oyo State
All eyes are on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC as the 2019 elections get closer every day.
In Ibadan, members of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) in Oyo state paid a visit to INEC Secretariat to remind them of their duties to Nigerians.
The chairperson of Oyo NAWOJ, Jadesola Ajibola told INEC, that Nigerians are optimistic that the election will be free credible and fair.
However, the commission needs to give all contestants a level playing ground during the election to allow their dreams to come true.
She also promised that journalists will carry out their responsibilities as the first estate of the realm and will promote professionalism.
But the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Barrister Mutiu Agboke, seized the opportunity to tell them sweet words in an attempt to woo them to the commission’s side.
According to him, INEC has a policy that encourages women participation in the electoral processes, including active participation in political party activities.
Agboke pointed out that he had not seen any female fake journalists in the state, urging the association to continue to promote professionalism and good ethical values.
The REC told journalists to continue to encourage citizens in their reports to pick up all uncollected PVCs which is over 900,000.
He said the PVC is the only means by which any citizen can participate in the forthcoming election.
