‘Examples are numerous, for instance if you look at the structure of the organisation, the editorial board chairman Mrs Funke Fadugba is a woman, the chairperson of planning committee, Dr Abiola Akiyode-Afolabi is also a woman’, she noted.

‘The Yoruba adage says, ‘Ti omode bamo owo we, aba agba jeun’ the integrity and competence of Dimeji Kayode-Adedeji, has always given him leverage to dine and wine with the elders, having built solid relationship with notable personalities within and outside the country till date’, Iyalode said

‘I must also appreciate, the Editorial Board, membership and team of Penpushing Media, no doubt they are competent hands. If within five years of Penpushing operations, it has become a household name globally, that shows authenticity of the media platform’, she added.

‘It is also on record that, the medium within its years of operations is in partnership with a number of reputable media organisations, has introduced new and positive initiative to add value to the profession, particularly in the area of fighting hard against fake news which is almost becoming order of the day, this no doubt is a good development and a clear fact that, the partnering organisations are convinced about the competence of Penpushing in the media world.

‘One notable example is partnership which exist between the organization and United Nations Information Centre(UNIC), as well as host of other notable organization within and outside Nigeria, and I must say this I am proud to be associated with Penpushing Media’,Lawson emphaised

‘I must also have to acknowledge another feat and innovation of Penpushing Media, which is highly commendable and this is moving forward in the area of  corporate social responsibility, by using the platform to address the plights of the less privileged and indigents, example that comes to mind among others is the case of Sarah Ajayi, 18-year-old blind girl, who lost her two eyes to cataract while in SSS 2 class about four years ago’, she noted.

‘Penpushing professionally took up her case which attracted a stakeholder on the platform, and took over the responsibilities to address her academic challenges. The Penpushing apart from the reportage, searched for a school for her, sponsored her education with the support of a former military administrator and today, Sarah is a graduate from the School for the blind, whose life has been transformed’.

‘In reference to this feat I want to task other media organisations to emulate the initiative of Penpushing Media, in the area of proactive journalism practice, and this will go a long way to bring smiles to faces of victims at all time’.

‘Finally, as you celebrate the 5th anniversary, I wish all stakeholders the best and happy celebration. I am also optimistic that, Penpushing Media is going places in the media industry, in view of the fact that, it started on a solid foundation to ease out fake news dissemination. Once again, congratulations.Thanks and God bless’, Lawson
