⁠⁠⁠Before You Call Us Names; Get Your Facts Right

The attention of the management of OAU Peeps News Agency has been drawn to a misleading information allegedly churned out by one Mr. Rasak Ayoola. He claimed that OAU Peeps News Agency, has at a point in time published news reports without adequate investigation and evidence.

Mr Rasaq mentioned this at the National Association of Nigerian Campus Editors (NANCE) Southwest Regional Workshop that held in Ibadan, on Saturday the 24th September, 2016.

As much as we at OAU Peeps remain very open to public suggestions on how we can improve on our service delivery, and constructive criticism that will up our redefined journalism, we will not tolerate any form of misleading information, which we strongly believe was aimed at defaming the agency.

Mr Ayoola, is said to be the the South West Regional Editor of the Business Day newspaper and a 200 level student of the Faculty of Law. We are not sure if he really understands the operations of our news agency over the past few years, but perhaps he commits this offence he accuses the agency of. Obviously, we expected a mainstream journalist like him to make proper investigations before making assertions.

We are also surprised that some of our friends in the campus journalism sphere could also fall for this cheap propaganda as we have seen a couple of them publishing this falsehood.

In the meantime, we want to reassure our esteemed readers that OAU Peeps remains the news agency you trust, and we will continue to serve you unrepentantly.

Thank you.
