The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Ogun State Council is set to host an engaging dialogue featuring the House of Representatives members and Senators from Ogun State. 

This significant event, tagged “Dialogue with Ogun Journalists,” aims to reflect on and discuss the legislative activities and impacts of these elected officials over the past year.

Scheduled to take place from June 24 to June 29, 2024, at the Iwe-Irohin Press Center in Oke Ilewo, Abeokuta, the programme  will provide a platform for the nine House of Representatives members and three Senators from Ogun State to present their achievements and discuss their experiences in office. 

The dialogue aligns with the NUJ’s mission to uphold accountability, transparency, and the principles of democracy by providing a forum for open communication between journalists and lawmakers.

In a letter dated June 13, 2024, and signed by the Council Secretary, Comrade Bunmi Adigun, under the directive of the Council Chairman, Comrade Wale Olanrewaju, the NUJ formally invited all concerned legislators to participate in this pivotal event. 

The correspondence emphasized the importance of this dialogue in marking the legislators’ one-year milestone and offered congratulations on their contributions to their respective constituencies and the national legislative process.

“In marking this one year in office, the state council of the Union is putting up a program for all the Nine House of Reps members and the three Senators from Ogun State, tagged ‘Dialogue with Ogun Journalists’ where they will be able to speak to over five hundred journalists in Ogun about what they have done in the last one year of representation,” the letter stated.

The NUJ has urged all invited lawmakers to attend, underscoring the event as an opportunity to showcase their projects and developmental initiatives. 

The council has already sent out formal invitations and encourages any members with personal connections to the legislators to follow up and remind them of the event.

This dialogue session is not only a celebration of the lawmakers’ first year in office but also an essential exercise in democratic transparency.

 It allows journalists to ask critical questions and the public to gain insight into their representatives’ efforts and accomplishments.
