Arakunrin Akeredolu, ‘Kunle Adebayo And The Dying Ondo Radiovision Stations By Arakunrin Ajos
For days now, I’ve saved myself up to date with the numerous allegations in opposition to the Interim Chairman of OSRC and OrangeFM, Mr ‘Kunle Adebayo, from involved Ondo state people who find themselves actually desirous of a real and dealing radiovision outfit. I’ve additionally learn from totally different teams, domiciled in Ondo State too, who’ve raised their voices in opposition to the particular person and character of the Chairman and his poor, autocratic administration of the stations.
I waited for his response. I wished to substantiate if these allegations are baseless so the ‘venture’ might simply be deserted by the accusers whereas the general public wave it off as a kind of media trial in opposition to a really upright, first rate, working and accountable official of the Ondo State authorities.
I used to be disenchanted!
His defence, which got here out as some kind of accusation, was watery, undefendable, political and had, written throughout it, the writings of 1 who’s condescending, smug, energy drunk and assured he has the ears and assurances of the actual energy brokers contained in the Alagbaka Authorities Home. He accused the ‘perpetrators’ of being willful instruments within the arms of the PDP, the most important opposition social gathering in Ondo. He additionally fingered many unnamed present and ex workers of OSRC and OrangeFM because the brains behind the social media assaults on his particular person. He requested why he will not cope with some workers members who acquired undue benefit(s) from the PDP earlier than the approaching of Arakunrin Akeredolu.
I don’t get entangled in character assassination or laundering of photos of each non-public and public officers, but among the issues few of us find out about Mr ‘Kunle Adebayo have to be delivered to the general public for His Excellency, Arakunrin Akeredolu, to wade in and save the stations and in addition his political profession hanging within the free if he continues to affiliate with and retain him because the boss of our personal OSRC and OrangeFM.
Might I ask why Mr. Governor, listening to the ‘skilled’ recommendation from his GM, shut down our outdated and beautiful 96.5fm? This can be a station inside the huge compound of OSRC, utilizing the identical generator and workers. 96.5fm would compete with any Nigerian radio station with simply little improve to the services, rebranding and repackaging, renovating the buildings and bringing on more competent arms and it might be on prime the ladder. Why shut down the station when it could possibly make more cash into the coffers of the state authorities?
It is even on file that OrangeFM is now the one station earning money for the federal government whereas OSRC TV, with all monies pumped into it, has remained like a horse galloping away in a e-book, ineffective and making no monetary return into the federal government purse. It is also confirmed that the ‘rebranded’ OSRC TV we watch at house is the work of wonderful software program guys exhibiting what’s not for us. I am a frequent customer to OSRC and I do know higher.
There is a critical allegation that the Interim Chairman of OSRC and OrangeFM, Mr ‘Kunle Adebayo, was dismissed from Adeyemi Faculty of Education, Ondo on crimes of rape. He was alleged to have dedicated the crime, relieved of his job and needed to change his title from ‘Kunle Ogunwale to ‘Kunle Adebayo. Somebody of such questionable and flawed character should not deal with the media homes of the nice folks of Ondo State. Or what can we inform our kids after we develop up? serial rapist as soon as headed OSRC?
And whereas lots of of competent, certified, skilled arms of Ondo State are prepared to maneuver the stations ahead, ‘Kunle Adebayo, from Osun State(or the State of Osun like the previous governor wished) heads our OSRC. It is unacceptable, unwise and unreasonable. Ondo state is blessed with media gurus that might flip the fates of OSRC round very quickly. Would Arakunrin Akeredolu overlook this? Would he retrieve our media homes from him and hand it again to the professionals who would not toy with the usual of the stations? Why would Arakunrin Akeredolu enable an outdoor destroy our heritage?
Concerning the requirements, I’ve stopped listening to many of the packages shoved down our throats by OrangeFM. That station is dying. The packages are dropping followers. The station’s score is getting decrease. The gear have gotten outdated. The opposite day, I used to be on a program for an hour and sweated all by way of. The AC wasn’t working and I needed to make do with a paper to fan. Within the 21st century? A radio station with the studio heating up?
There’s additionally an allegation that Mr Kunle Adebayo collects monies from OSRC and OrangeFM for workshops and seminars solely to take a seat at dwelling and wine and dine away with our cash. I noticed a mighty mansion he’s allegedly constructing on the Ijapo Extension of Akure. This edifice might solely be erected by one who wasn’t a landlord few months in the past however simply had entry to some slush funds. He has additionally been accused of suffocating and stifling workers members with opposing views and opinions to his autocracy and highhandedness.
The straw that broke the camel’s again was the allegation I learn this night in opposition to him by a gaggle accusing him of utilizing OrangeFM for some political programmes with out remitting the thousands and thousands of naira to the coffers of the station. I bear in mind Arakunrin Akeredolu made a pronouncement that state-owned media homes should not be used at no cost by candidates and aspirants from his personal social gathering. This prompted this lengthy epistle and I am dedicated to seeing it to the top.
Arakunrin Akeredolu, for his personal good, should do the needful by revamping our dying OSRC and set us again on the precise path by:
Organising a Panel of Enquiries to research these weighty allegations;
Relieving Mr. ‘Kunle Adebayo of his duties pending the studies from the panel;
Bringing again our beloved and upgraded 96.5fm;
Separating these three stations by appointing substantive Common Managers for every of them. OSRC TV, OSRC 96.5FM and Orange 94.5FM;
Reviewing all of the anti-worker insurance policies which have dampened the morale of the workers.
Arakunrin Akeredolu should, in earnest, save our dying heritage as we would go away no stone unturned to retrieve the stunning stations from the dangerous manager of males and our media homes.
