Yul Edochie, a popular Nollywood actor, has lamblasted Arise TV presenter, Rufai Oseni, over his recent attitude towards guests on the shows of his newsroom.
Recall that Rufai and Jesutega Onokpasa, a leading chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress had clashed during a show at the TV station on Monday.
The controversial presenter, who was questioning Onokpasa during the show, did not agree with the guest’s opinion as regards the subsidy removal by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The scene triggered reactions from Nigerians, especially supporters of the present administration, who accused Oseni of being biased.
In his reaction to it, Edochie, in a video seen on his Instagram account, told Oseni to shut up, describing him as a very disrespectful person, adding that the latter lacks the moral integrity to talk with people of high status.
In the words of Edochie: “My friend shut up and sit down! I’m talking to you! You have no right, you don’t have any moral justification to talk where people with integrity are talking! You are talking nonsense on national TV, you are a very disrespectful person, you have no respect for the laws of this country! In fact if someone like you becomes president, you will wipe out Nigerians. Are you not the same person that was caught driving on BRT lane? You could not even apologise, if not because somebody had a video, that was when you came on national TV to apologise. This is what you do, imagine the other ones that we’ve not seen before. Who taught you journalism? The first thing they should have taught you is to respect your guests.
“You are not better than anybody out there. You are a very disrespectful person and you should go and learn journalism, you are insulting people on national TV.
“Same Rufai Oseni that is insulting people, acting like God on national TV, making your guests very uncomfortable, you dey form like na you get Nigeria, you are the most concerned citizen, you are more concerned than all of us, my friend shut up! You have no moral justification to talk to anybody on TV that way because you’re not better than any Nigerian.”
