•NUJ National President, Comrade Waheed Odusile

Ahead of the October 3rd Delegates Conference of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Abeokuta, Ogun State, National President of the union, Comrade Waheed Odusile, has been accused of involvement in multi-million naira scandal.

He was also accused of allegedly trying to convert the union’s vehicle, “purchased with the money given to NUJ by the Lagos State Government as his personal property”.

A statement by a Kaduna-based journalist, Comrade Isah Rabiu, published in WaWa News Global (WNG) online newspaper on Friday insisted that the incumbent NUJ President “must surely account for it and other shady deals of his inglorious three years first term.”

According to the statement, the NUJ boss also allegedly claimed that the N10 million donation by the Lagos State Government to the council was a personal gift to him.

He was equally accused of buying choice properties in Abuja and Lagos.

Comrade Odusile, when contacted, however, denied any involvement in the alleged scam, challenging his accusers to produce proof of their allegations.

He described the allegation as “total nonsense and cheap blackmail” by his detractors.
