VETERAN BROADCASTER, Tonia Ike-Ejeye INSTALLED ''ADAEJIEJEMBA'' BY GHE ORSU COMMUNITIES IN LAGOS.

It was a weekend of comprehensive joy and praises to God for veteran broadcaster and Head of Editorial department at the African Independent Television, AIT, Mrs. Tonia Ike-Ejeye as her people, the entire Orsu communities living in Lagos converged to honour her for her indelible contributions to the development of her profession, the Media and the community she comes from.


According to a letter written and delivered to Uju Ejeye, the ORSU-IHITEUKWU DEVELOPMENT UNION under the leadership of Chief F.M Oguleke, said that the honour is in recognition of her exploits in the broadcast industry, so the entire Orsu community in Lagos deemed it fit to receive and install her, the ADAEJIEJEMBA at an elaborate event which coincided with their annual award and hall opening ceremony.
Mrs. Tonia Ike-Ejeye.
ADAEJIEJEMBA in Igboland is a name given to girl children either married or single, who has distinguished themselves in their chosen careers and stood tall as role models of where they come, and it literarily means, A ROLE MODEL DAUGHTER.
Reacting after receiving the award and decoration, Mrs. Tonia Ike-Ejeye thanked God for the opportunity to have risen as an Orsu indegene, to the pinnacle of her career as a Journalist, while appreciating some of the men who had made it easier for her to have had a smooth sail in the broadcast industry.
She said that the award which came to her as a shock could only have been possible through God alone and with men like John Momoh of Channels Television and Chief Raymond Dokpesi of AIT as instruments in His hands.

The event was attended by her friends and family, including colleague veterans who came to join in her joy and thanksgiving.

The Orsu Development Union used the occasion to commission the hall and give awards to other deserving members of the community in Lagos.
