Drama as Arise TV’s Rufai Oseni clashes with APC chieftain during live interview


Popular Arise TV Presenter, Rufai Oseni on Monday, clashed with a guest on the Tv stations The Morning Show causing a public uproar across various parts of the country.

Useni who is known for vehemently antagonizing Nigeria’s incumbent president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his political party, was viewed on screen as he engaged in a word battle with a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Jesutega Onokpasa during a live interview.This was as the journalist disagreed with the chieftain’s view concerning the fuel subsidy removal.In a viral short clip, while Oseni talked, Onokpasa tried to interrupt him, but the interviewer said, “Let me finish Mr Onokpasa. Let me finish please.”Useni’s response, however, did not go well with Onokpasa who claimed that the interviewer was disrespectful to him as a guest on the programme and threatened to leave the studio if the interviewer continued to speak to him in a high tone.Onokpasa, pointing fingers at the screen, said, “Please, don’t raise your voice at me, young man. Don’t raise your voice at me Rufai. I’m your guest, you will respect me. I will walk out of your studio if you raise your voice at me. Talk to me respectfully.”But Oseni responded, “You may well take your decision if you want to. I’m asking a question. You might decide to walk out if you want to.”However, as the duo kept talking at the same time with and the Arise TV presenter grappling with words to ask a question, the already agitated Mr Onokpasa deliberately refused to listen or respond to his question. He rather called on Useni’s colleagues on the Programme to ask him if they had any further questions.Rufai Oseni is a Presenter on the Arise Tv network, one of the biggest and most influential Tv stations in Nigeria currently.
