The Chairman of Nigeria Union of Journalists, Ogun State Council, Comrade Soji Amosu has congratulated Anthony Joshua on his successful outing against Andy Ruiz Jr. last night in Saudi Arabia.


In a special statement, the Chairman said AJ's victory came from his resilience, determination, and dedication to his stride which, according to him is the hallmark of a man delirious of success.

The number one Journalists in Ogun State which is the cradle of Journalism in Nigeria stated winners would not make excuses or engage in fraudulent plots to bring down opposition but work assiduously to achieve result as Anthony Joshua has done.

Amosu added that winners were sincere people who would stay true to themselves,  accept defeat if it happened, and prepare to address their shortcomings whenever opportunity represented itself, just exactly what Anthony Joshua has done by convincingly defeating Andy Ruiz Jr. who had defeated him during their first bout in June. 

The NUJ Chairman said all Journalists in the state prayed for him and they stayed glued to their television not only to report, but to watch their brother pummel his opponent to submission by KO or win at the end of the 12 rounds bout.

The NUJ Chairman stated that AJ's victory was not only his own but also that of the people of Ogun and indeed Nigeria because. " He is proudly Nigerian," he stressed.

Amosu charged Nigerian politicians and anyone contesting for any elective position to learn from the career of Anthony Joshua who stayed humble in defeat but remained hungry for success, advising them to steer clear of do or die kind of polity which according to him has remained a spinner in the wheel of the progress of the nation.
