The careless comment of the Chairman Editorial board, of Vanguard newspaper, Ocherome Nnanna has turned more heads as anticipated and this had caused the press/media company to release it’s official statement on the hateful and tribalistic speech.
Vanguard has disassociated itself from Ocherome Nnanna’s viral comment and reminded the general public of it’s brand promise to deliver the news as it is, without favour or contempt for a particular tribe.
Without disclosing details as to the sanction or punishment which awaits or currently meted on Nnanna, the newspaper pledged its commitment to serve the public, as it noted that his comment was private and indeed unnecessary.
Meanwhile, the conversation on the bigotry and nepotism continues on all social media platforms as the journalist is yet to issue an apology
