The celebrity Journal Publishers Association of Nigeria (CJPAN) has condemned the action taken by the former Minister and PDP chieftain, Chief Femi Fani Kayode while reacting irrationally to a simple question that demands simple answer from the Daily post reporter, Mr. Charles Eyo who is also a Bishop in Olumba Olumba’s Ministry.
We however condemned the shameful act of FFK by calling him all sorts of names. Indeed, a big slap on all media practitioners.Thus, the profession seems to be a thankless job while practicing in Nigeria.
This is not acceptable while we demand an apology
This was made known in an emergency meeting held on Tuesday
Also, the media group has called for stiffer action and total black out of any of his events.
Rise up now, to the pendulum, may swing to any of our members; what will be our reference point?
The group noted that is this how our leaders, Political rulers and so called big men will be lambasting, insulting and intimidating our profession? No This rubbish must stop!
In the same vein, The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, has lambasted the former minister of aviation, Femi Fani Kayode for verbally assaulting Cross River State Correspondent of the Daily Trust Newspaper, Eyo Charles.
The PDP chieftain had held a press conference in Cross River State at the end of his tour of states in the South-South region controlled by the party.
The ex-minister in a viral video was seen attacking the journalist and calling him stupid for asking the ex-minister if his tour was being sponsored by any politician or political group.t
