In the intriguing piece, Charly Boy writes that Nicholas Ibekwe, the journalist who exposed T.B Joshua’s gift of N50k to the journalists reporting the Synagogue collapsed building deserved the National Award which was given recently to about 300 Nigerians. He also pledged the sum of N300k to any journalist who shows remarkable integrity in the discharge of his duties. Read his piece below..
“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it” – George Owells.
How hard service must be in a decadent society like ours where words like credibility, honesty, honor, truthfulness, professionalism and integrity are fast becoming extinct and rapidly being replaced by corruption, greed sharpness, evil, materialistic lust, the list is endless! That’s how deep the rot is. However my story today no bedat yarn.
National awards were given a few days ago to deserving and not so deserving Nigerians. Honorary awards are meant to be given in recognition for exceptional achievements, integrity and distinction. So therefore, I hereby confer my own nationalist award of Officer of the Order of the Niger, OON to Mr. Nicholas Ibekwe.
I’m sure so many of you are wondering who that is and yes until a few days ago, I didn’t even know who he was.
