Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajumobi, on Tuesday lambasted journalists covering his party, the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for asking him to make comment, saying he does not recognise any of the local media present at the party office.
The governor who is currently battling with unpaid salary in the Oyo state, came along other APC governors but descended on the kournalists after an unfruitful meeting with the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party.
When the journalists approach him to comment on the behind closed door meeting with the party leadership, Ajumobi who asked all the journalists present one after the other the names of their media organisations, therefore shouted on top of his voice that “I don’t know any of these media houses, so I can’t talk.”
Some of the media representatives present at the party Secretariat include Thisday, Telegraph, Vision fm, Leadership, Blueprint, Newsdairy, Lagos Television station, Galaxy TV, The Tide, Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) and the Niche among many others.
Ajumobi who spoke in yoruba said: “I know what they want is money, call me one of my aides to find something for them, I don’t have time for any comment.”
Some of the Journalists who were not comfortable with the insults therefore warned Ajumobi’s aide identified as Dayo not to approach them with money.
Our reporters however observed that some party loyalists descended on the Governor’s aide and forcefully collected the money.
