Yesterday, the Osun State council of NUJ organised a rerun election to elect its Chairman.

You will recall the immediate past chairman, Kehinde Ayantunji was appointed as Senior Special Assistant to Governor Oyetola on Student affairs and mobilization.

The Acting Chairman, Wasiu Ajadosu and Dele Ajayi threw their hats into the ring to contest the position, at the end of the election, Wasiu Ajadosu polled majority votes and was declared winner

In his acceptance speech, Ajadosu promised to run an all inclusive administration where welfare of members will be his major concern.

His statement read;
“Today marks a significant point in the life of our Union in the state; it is indeed  a day to keep fate with destiny, for total rejuvenation of our confraternity, and  for better performance and entrenchement of dynamic  leadership approach, to attain the original goals  and objectives of this great assemblage of societal illuminators.

“Sincerely,  our Union,  at this period of its emaciation from the shackles of dilapidation and stagnation deserves  a vibrant leadership that  possess necessary intellect, dexterity and capability, to give pathway for development and turnaround.

“Just seven months into the administration of Comrade Kehinde Ayantunji,  with the support of the former Correspondents’ Chairman, Mr Olaniyi Ajibola’s  revitalization and rehabilitation committee, with my humble self as the Vice- chairman, we have succeded  in changing the state and fate  of the union through total transformation of our facility, without getting a dime from neither government nor any individual.

“This outstanding feat was unprecedentedly  achieved through the ingenuity and creativity of the committee; with resultant  commendations and loud ovation from   the members of the Union,  as well as  friends of journalists in the state.

See this... Adeosun, a Man of humility, says Oyadosu

“It is therefore  behoves on my administration to sustain this legacy of innovation and inclusive leadership, for the purpose of building a strong and dogged Union,  where the superior interests of all members are jealously protected.

“It is a resounding pledge on my part, that the Union under my watch will assidiously work to guarantee better welfare for members and make Osun council of the NUJ, a pride to all.

“As part of our blueprint for responsive leadership, my administration will immediately set up a Thrift and Cooperative Society for the Union, with  engagement of cooperative experts, to   assist in improving the economic base of our members, especially in the period of emergency and time of needs.
“It will also serve as a leverage for our members to acquire desired property.

“It may interest you to note that,  in the last one month of holding sway as Acting Chairman,  I have realized the need to  restore confidence in our members through training and retraining,  and this informed my decision to organise a virtual workshop to further equip our members with requisite  skills needed to navigate period of provocation.

“I want to assure you, that my  administration is going to sustain the tempo, by always search  for opportunity of building capacity of members through local and international trainings.

“The high demand for restoration of IIJ by members actually makes it imperative for my administration to quickly resuscitate IIJ programme in the state by embracing template of Oyo state,  which has sustained the programme for decades.
“It has become intrinsically germane, at this point to solicit support of all members to achieve all these laudable goals, knowing fully well that  these can only be possible through collective  efforts, since  the tasks  ahead are challenging and daunting.

“Permit me to conclude this address by sharing the brilliant thought of the 16th American  President, Abraham Lincoln,  who posits that ,” Nearly  all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power”.

“Today, you  have entrusted me with your votes, and I solemnly pledge to reciprocate your love and affections  through responsible, and responsive leadership, the one that is  clearly rooted in efficiency and effectiveness.
