While expressing his appreciation, the elated Segun-Joel thanked the deputy governor for deeming it fit to honour him with the appointment, which according to him, was beyond his expectation.
“I wish to want to thank the deputy governor for choosing me as his Senior Special Assistant for online. This appointment has given a new dimension to my journalism career.”
“I want to dedicate this new position to God Almighty, my family and all members of the press crew and I want to use this medium to reiterate that I will use this opportunity to discharge my duties diligently and be committed to the welfare of my colleagues who have been supporting me through thin and thick.”
While felicitating the new appointee, the chairman of members of the press crew, Mr. Yinka Adeniran, described Segun as a dedicated journalist, who has cut his teeth in the profession.
Adeniran, a correspondent with The Nation newspaper, then charged other members of the press crew to be diligent and dedicated to their duties, adding that, these are the hallmark of the profession.
