Ace broadcaster, Aku Obidinma has quit his job at Ozisa 96.1FM Owerri, Imo State to serve as the state Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, LP.
Aku announced the development in a post on his verified Facebook page on Sunday, July 3, 2022.
The broadcaster said he decided to quit his broadcasting job in line with global standard practice which demands that he does so to avoid a clash of interest.
While noting that he would miss broadcasting, a job he loves, Aku submitted that he owes a greater obligation to the country at this stage of her march to nationhood by joining in rescuing her from the woods.
He pleaded with Nigerians to join hands with those of them in the Labour Party to give birth to a better and prosperous Nigeria.
Aku wrote; “As a professional broadcast journalist, I humbly wish to inform my fans and listening public that yours truly will from today cease to be on air as a radio presenter.
“This is due to my new responsibility as the spokesman of the ballot revolutionizing Obidient Labour Party.
“Best global practice demands that I quit radio presentation now to avoid a clash of interest and bias.
“I will surely miss broadcasting which is a job I love so much but there is a greater obligation we owe this country at this critical stage of our nationhood journey and that is the sacrifice in ensuring it is rescued from the woods that it is in today.
“I therefore enjoin you all my supporters who love and enjoy my programmes for our stand for uprightness to join me and millions of other Obidient Nigerians into the Labour Room to reborn a better and prosperous Nigeria”.
A statement issued on Monday, July 4 and signed by the Secretary of the party in the state, Fabian Uwaforo-Okohchi announced the appointment of Aku Obidinma as the state Publicity Secretary while Alvan Opara is the state Assistant Publicity Secretary of the party.
The statement reads in part; “By this appointment, the Labour Party in Imo State confirms Comr. Obidinma Aku as the official spokesman of the party and is therefore confident that her soaring good image will be taken to higher heights, going by the impressive track record of the duo in service to the society”.
