HATFIELD, United Kingdom (VOICE OF NAIJA) –Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has berated Arise News Channel’s achor, Rufai Oseni, over his clash with member of the defunct All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Jesutega Onokpasa on live broadcast.
Reacting to the clash between Onokpasa, a pro-Tinubu guest and Oseni during Arise News ‘The Morning Show’ breakfast show on Monday, the actor said the anchor acts like god on TV.
In a video captioned ‘My message to Rufai Oseni’, posted via the actor’s verified Instagram page on Tuesday, Yul Edochie described Oseni as a disrespectful person.
Edochie recalled a viral video of Oseni violating a traffic law and threatening to call the governor of Lagos State to report law enforcement officers who accosted him.
“Is this not the same Rufai Oseni that was caught driving against traffic driving on BRT lane in Lagos around last year or so? And when the officials stopped him instead of apologizing and accepting he is at fault, he said ‘do you know who I am? I’m going to call the Governor of Lagos State’, Same Rufai Oseni, who was insulting people on national TV? All in the name of doing journalism, my friend sit down, you don’t have any moral right to talk where people with integrity are taking.
“You are talking nonsense on the national TV, you are a very disrespectful person, you have no respect for the laws of the country.
“Who taught you journalism? The first thing they should’ve taught you is to respect your guests. If you have a guest and you’re talking in a manner the guest does not like, first thing you do is apologize to that guest, make the guest feel comfortable, then you continue with your question.
“How can you tell a guest that if they are not comfortable, they are free to walk out? You were even laughing at your guest.
