” The OSBC Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists deserves commendation for the foresight of making His Royal Majesty its life Patron. There is no doubt that given the unprecedented accomplishments of Oba Makama, his great wealth of experience, wisdom and knowledge, the OSBC Chapel of the NUJ had made a wise decision by appointing him its life patron. There is doubt that he will impact it positively as he bring his leadership, great wealth of experience and enormous goodwill to assist the Union.”
