Akeredolu, who described the appointment as well-deserved, “having served the same organisation meritoriously for over two decades, said: “No doubt, Oloja has contributed immensely to building an alluring and rich brand in the Guardian Newspapers, with dedication and commitment to the tenets of journalism of unbiased reportage, educating the people and setting agenda to drive overall growth and development in the country.
“Oloja has over the years shown that he is indeed a watchdog for the people. His pen has spoken truth to power. He has continued to project the media as a strong Fourth Estate of the Realm.”
While thanking the media organisation for finding Oloja worthy of the new office, the governor said the new managing director had by dint of hard work and passion carved a niche for himself in the media space in the country.
