The Nigeria Union of Journalists,(NUJ), Ogun State Council, commiserates with the OGBC, OGTV staff, families and the State Government over the demise of an astute journalist and the General Manager, OGBC,Mr. Diji Akinhanmi whose death occurred on Thursday.
The death of Akinhanmi fondly called ” Man Digger” came as a rude shock to members of the pen profession as he was known to be a thorough professional, who will take no excuse for professional misconduct.
The NUJ Chairman, Comrade Soji Amosun according to the press release signed by the union’s Secretary, Kunle Ewuoso, described Diji as a man who was reputed for discipline, and whose appointment as General Manager of OGBC was reckoned to have brought back the lost glory of the station.
Diji Akinhanmi who started his career as a reporter in OGBC and rose to the position of Assistant General Manager News and Current Affairs OGTV before he was appointed General Manager OGBC due to his track records and excellent performance, will be missed by all.
The release further added that, entire journalists in Ogun State led by Comrade Soji Amosu take solace in the fact that Uncle Diji lived a fulfilled and impactful life.
