Samuel Ogundipe Resigns From Premium Times Over El-Rufai, Dangote Stories by AnonPoet: 10:53am On Sep 16
Samuel Ogundipe, a top Nigerian journalist in Abuja, has resigned from Premium Times.

His resignation seems to be related to the story he did about Bello El-Rufai, who threatened to gang rape someone’s aged mother.

El-Rufai’s son publicly threatened to deal with Samuel for writing the story, but Premium Times didn’t do anything about it.

Weeks later, he tweeted about a document from Dangote that he received and his editor, Musikilu Mojeed, came online to attack him and threatened to punish him.

Many people attacked Mojeed on social media for conducting himself unprofessionally.

Samuel resigned a few weeks later and made his decision known on Twitter today, September 16.

He has now started a new digital media outlet, Peoples Gazette, in Abuja.

If this could happen at Premium Times it shows how tough journalism is in Nigeria, you have enemy both in and out.

We wish Samuel and his new team well.

You do the right things and you are made a scapegoat, while those who hail all looters & call them 'your excellency', and asslick morally bankrupt individuals are given awards. To succeed as a journalist in Nigeria, you must be a hype man like Alexreports.

He should use his new platform to go fully into investigative journalism and also expose all he knows and had witnessed in terms of junk journalism to favor the highest bidders in his time at Premium Times.

Journalism is a joke in Nigeria. If in doubt, check out the comedians and bambialas like Alexreports and his ilks.

Truth always has its price.
Most times it's very heavy and challenging.
May God help you in your new path, may He keep you safe, help make your journey smooth and not allow you deviate from the side of truth.
