Politicians have no fixed address – Fayose

Politicians have no fixed address – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has said that politicians have no shame, and conscience, and warned journalists against celebrating them.

Fayose stated this on Tuesday at the World Press Freedom Day organised by the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Oyo State Council in Ibadan, where he was the guest speaker.


Speaking extempore on the topic: “Journalism and Politics; two sides of a coin,” Fayose called on journalists to hold politicians accountable, expose corruption, and shun act of blatant political partisanship.

“You are the last hope of common man. When journalists support looters, there is confusion of vision. Journalists should shy away from it. Bad politicians should be brought to justice. Don’t write about issues you don’t know. Don’t rely on what a politician told you of his supposed enemy and don’t inherit his enemies. Journalists must help bring corrupt politicians to justice.

“When politicians are going wrong, let them feel the heat first from you. Most politicians are using journalists in Nigeria for their dirty jobs and they are supporting wicked politicians. Journalists in Nigeria always shy away from the truth because they are self-centred and greedy. As a journalist, you need to discharge your duty without fear or favour.

“Politicians have no address and this is why it is possible for a politician to defect from PDP after 12 years to APC and is being celebrated as a saint. Journalists should stop supporting and having soft spots for political parties and politicians. Some of you have sympathy for PDP or APC. Don’t join our battle. You are the hope of the common man and the only thing they can enjoy,” Fayose said.
