  • Agba Jalingo, I have a video of my interaction with the so called REC. I retrieved it from one of the news platforms. I wish to inform you that this wasn’t my first engagement, but when people tries to obstruct natural flows, they frown at everything that could seemingly work against their intentions. I was asked to explain what happened in the field based on the report before me. I did explain all; but he became angry and said he wouldn’t have engaged me. He never said I behave like a pupil because if I heard such I would have requested he withdrew the statement publicly. I know who I am. I took time to explain this because I just want to show you that I am mature. But you just proved to the world your level of immaturity. It is not surprising because when you venture into a profession propelled by joblessness; it will not be out of place at the level of unguided stupendous outpour exposing your indecent skills. You are not a Journalist, so you don’t know that a real Journalist is supposed to be backed up with some level of Psychology, etc to guide his utterance. I bet you, if you go further to report indiscriminate things about me, I will sue you. I know you are not a certified Journalist.
