Oladipo was elected during the association’s election held on August 9, 2017 in Lagos. ‎

Senator Udoma’s message was conveyed through a letter addressed to Oladipo.

The letter, dated August 14, 2017 and signed by Akpandem James, the Special Adviser to the Minister, said: “It is with great delight that I convey the Honourable Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma  Udo Udoma’s  felicitation to  you and your team for emerging successful at the Guild’s election held on Wednesday last week ahead of  your very successful Annual General Conference in Lagos on Thursday.

“The Minister particularly notes your untiring efforts at building the Guild and was not at all surprised that members confidently elected you to lead them. The other members of your team were no less considered, as they have played pioneering roles at different points in the emergence of the very formidable platform whose members make up the Guild.

“Senator Udoma has been following the activities of the Guild and notes its contribution so far to national development and particularly the cordial relationship the Ministry shares with its members.

“It is rather unfortunate that your conference fell on the same day that the Ministry hosted a Cabinet Retreat in Abuja, a development which made it impossible for the Minister or any Senior member of the Ministry to be part of your conference, but the minister has indicated his intention to work towards further enhancing the relationship between the Ministry and GOCOP going forward.”

Similarly, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, the Chief Press Secretary to the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson,  congratulated Oladipo.

Iworiso-Markson also‎ congratulated other members of the Guild who emerged victorious during the election.

They are Maureen Chigbo, the Publisher of RealNews magazine, who is now the Deputy President; Danlami Nmodu, Publisher of NewsDiaryonline, General Secretary; and Collins Edomaruse, who is the publisher of Metro Watch Online, as Deputy General Secretary.

Others are Segun Adeleye, Publisher of World Stage, who was elected the Financial Secretary; Janet Mba-Afolabi, Publisher of the Scroll, who is the Treasurer; and Olumide Iyanda, Publisher of Qed.ng, who emerged the Publicity Secretary of the Guild.‎

Iworiso-Markson in his congratulatory message said the election of Oladipo would further strengthen the Guild and position it for greatness as it continues to carry out its core mandate of informing and educating people through various online platforms.

He also expressed his appreciation to the entire members of the Guild for the relationship it has maintained with the Bayelsa State Government under the leadership of Dickson.‎
