Comrade Felix Igbekoyi has emerged as the Director-General of the Ikeogwu Campaign Organisation, christened the Redemption Team, in the race for the chairmanship position in the up coming election of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Delta State.
Speaking in an acceptance speech to other members of the team who included the who is who in the politics of the NUJ from the various chapels of the union in the state, Comrade Igbekoyi maintained that there was the urgent need to rescue the union in the state from being hijacked by those desperately planning to control the affairs of the union for their selfish interest.
Comrade Igbekoyi, who was a one time Vice-Chairman of the union in the state, said that Comrade Ikeogwu as the chairman of the union would enhance probity, accountability and responsiveness, adding that Comrade Ikeogwu had proven his managerial competence and leadership capacity during his first tenure as the Council Chairman of the union in the state.
He wondered why certain people were asking for his replacement as the council chairman in the forth coming election of the union in the state, saying that members of the union in the state and beyond should be wary of such unwholesome move.
Comrade Igbekoyi reiterated the need to shun those calling for Ikeogwu to be voted out as the chairman of the union in the state, saying that such unpatriotic members of the union were out to loot the resources of the union in the state which Ikeogwu had so far resisted to their chagrin.
