Isha Sesay, a popular broadcaster with CNN has announced her exit from the organisation after spending 13 years.
She broke the news on social media a few minutes ago saying “it’s really happening, folks!! After more than a decade behind the desk with those three red letters… I HAVE LEFT CNN.”
Speaking on the reason for her exit in an interview with Whatweseeee, Sesay said,
“It’s an exciting time for me and a nerve-wracking one. I’m writing a book about the Chibok girls, it’s being released in May 2019. It really speaks to where my head is at, currently a lot more coverage about Africa, a lot more work on the continent, and a lot more focus on young girls. That’s what I’m about right now.”
Speaking further, Afegbua said.
“You can see it in the widespread insecurity in the country, there is no efficiency in leadership. This country needs a stronger, younger element that can unify us, go around the country and build bridges of understanding and begin the process of healing the wounds in the land. There are wounds in the hearts of people either at the tribal or religious level and it wasn’t like this before. So, we are pained that those who are promoters of Buhari, because of reelection are not honest with Nigerians and they are not patriotic enough to tell the president the truth that his health can no longer carry him and that Nigeria is appearing to be less governed. This country needs a man who is awake when the country is sleeping. We need a man who will walk within the pace of the country and not the country walking at his own pace. One man cannot continue to hold 180 million Nigerians to ransom” he said
