The Nigeria Union Of Journalists, Oyo State council has advised the state governor, Seyi Makinde to again take another look and reconsider his decision to demolish BCOS staff quarters.
The Chairman, NUJ, Oyo State council, Ademola Babalola gave this advice while featuring on Fresh FM daily morning programme “Situation Room” anchored by Isaac Brown.
He stated that the union had advised the state government that instead of total demolition of the quarters, renovation work can be initiated just like that of Lekan Salami Stadium and Agbowo Shopping complex.
Oyo state governent should take a second look at the issue and if they want to take over the premises, they should consider history.
Comrade Babalola therefore urged Oyo State government to think of the future of the residents.
“Fifty Percent of the place should be reserved for BCOS staff and expansion in future, I pray and demand that the place becomes a training school for broadcaters in this country, that issue must be critically looked into” he added.
