Dr Kolawole Oredipe, a media advisor to Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri, has formally joined the Peoples Democratic Party’ s Ogun State chapter.
As a result, Oredipe, a broadcaster and the Bayelsa State Governor’ s Director of New Media, conveyed this to journalists in Abeokuta on Sunday.
Thus, the media practitioner, who originates from Iperu- Remo in Ogun State’ s Ikenne Local Government Area, claimed to have spent more than 20 years practicing journalism and had established himself as an expert on Niger Delta reportage.
” I had wished to enter active politics, ” he said, ” having been an active union leader at NUJ, I ran for the leadership of the Bayelsa State Council of NUJ, and I finished second. ” People were taken aback by the fact that I, a Yoruba man, had received so many votes.
” As a result, even though I am still serving in Bayelsa, I am returning to Ogun State. ” In Ogun State, I’ ll be more active in politics. My narrative is about a journalist who decides to pursue a career in politics.
” We have a number of them, including Smart Adeyemi, the current governor of Bauchi State, who was previously a journalist. ” They’ re strewn throughout the place. So I’ ve come to Ogun State to formally declare my entry into active politics. “
He insisted, however, that he had not yet made up his mind about his political future. However, the journey has begun, and there is no turning back.
Now that 2023 is rapidly coming, it is imperative to begin planning, and planning begins with the type of political party one needs or chooses to join.
However, serving in a state other than the one where I chose to join a major political party. Nonetheless, it is part of the political process for me to guarantee that I am in line and familiar with the area or state in which I may be interested in running for any post.
