NUJ Licks Dora’s Arse

NUJ Licks Dora’s Arse
The Guardian of Dec. 23,2008 cited the general
secretary – if there’s any sensible title like that – of
the Nigerian Union of Journalists worshipping Dora
Akuyili, the new information zombie,a square peg,
Mr Yar’ Adua just crammed into the round hole of
information and communication ministry.
Holy shit! See what payola has done to the psyche
0f the Nigerian media.

This is a country heaving with gazillions of veteran
journalists and communication experts who have
risked their lives and lost their limbs while informing
this gaddem Nigeria.They’re more experienced and
brainier ,as information and communication goes,than
the drug-baron huntress imposed on the country.
And yet, the NUJ’s Usman Leman was the first goon,
with his retinue of sycophants,to sing the praises of the
complete gatecrasher of a minister.

Why wouldn’t the NUJ reason like the Nigerian Medical
Association that preferred Oshotimehin, a medic, in
health ministry,to Akuyili, a drug mixer and dispenser
with millions of international awards?
Would the ICAN have grinned and borne it if Leman or
that NAN’s topdog, Remi Oyo,had been installed as
finance minister?

It beats me that uptill now,no writer or columnist or
political broadcaster, has put up the mis-appointment
of Akuyili for discussion.Not even the AIT lion,Gbenga
Aruleba.
It’s a shame.
They‘d rather file down to Akuyili’s house like dummies
to worship her,the veteran minister.

The whole world knows Nigeria inherited a sickly
president [ from the PDP ] that needs more rest and
much less work. He might either be snoring in bed or
recovering from one of his kidney crises when his
partisan advisers insisted Akuyili must still be relevant
after about a decade in government .They know the
NUJ is poverty-ridden, and its members will joyfully
swallow any shit if she dangles a brown envelope, or
tames the likes of Leman with a menial job like PA
or PS.

That’s it. The scramble begins.
The NUJ has bartered its professional integrity.

    It seems to me that Nigeria has refused to learn lessons – important lessons learned from Adenike Grange and Morris Iwu. These were achievers in their various fields of endeavours but total failures in their pedestrians’ field. I don’t see her excelling.
