Our ever conscious gentlemen of the press your enviable impact in Ogun state has demonstrated the roles of journalism in linear democracy is non-negotiable, it is only an uncivilized society that will not appreciate the effort of the Civil society and Journalism in the front agitation for good governance. Any government that fails to promote Human Rights is doomed to fail in any capacity, however I believe it is a new era of indivisible partnership between the CDHR and NUJ Ogun State
Fellow comrades, we are key players, substantive stakeholders, the heart of common masses and hope of this country, I beseech us not to relent in our activities rather engage the oppressors, challenge the siege, and promote justice irrespective of the circumstances we find ourselves

Comrades, let me use this medium to seek the cooperation of the State Governor Sen.Ibikunle Amosun FCA, the Honourable Commissioner of Police, Director of State Security Service and other constitutionally saddled agency with the responsibility of maintaining Peace,Order and Security in the State. This request is fundamental as your supposed roles in summary focus on human rights sustainability in the State hence your cooperation will be much required, I am of the ideological school that the 3 C’s to struggle be exhausted on the agitation ground. Consultation, Consolidation and Confrontation
The Anti-Corruption agencies, EFCC, ICPC , Judiciary and our Diamond partners in the struggle the Nigerian Labour Congress led by the ever ready Comr.Ambali Akeem ,Trade Union Congress and other civil society organizations in the state your cooperation to nutrient our hard earned democracy
