Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has congratulated the President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors, Mr Femi Adeshina, saying he will bring a breath of fresh air to the Guild.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Peter Okhiria, Oshiomhole said “your election to lead the elite group of Nigeria Editors is well deserved as you have proved beyond reasonable doubt that you have the capacity to lead the Guild.
“I recall my encounter with you at the Nigerian Editors Conference in Benin City in 2011, where you displayed intrinsic intellect, and with your election, I have no doubt in my mind that the Guild is in safe hands.
“Following the remarkable achievements recorded by your predecessor, Mr. Gbenga Adefaye, I’m sure you will bring on board a breath of fresh air and build on the successes on ground.
“While I commend the Nigerian Guild of Editors for the rancor-free process which produced the new leaders, I plead with the new President to be magnanimous in victory and work closely with all to make the Guild even stronger.”
