My earlier plan was to announce my departure from NTUC Income on 5 October (Income Day). This will allow some time for some of the details to be finalised.
The Straits Times heard about about the "rumour". They insisted on writing the story. I requested them to wait for a few days for the media release.
When I learned that the Straits Times insist on carrying the story, I had to get my chairman to agree to issue the media release earlier.
I had also to inform my colleagues about the announcement, so that they do not hear about it from the papers. This has to be done at midnight.
I am very sad at the inconsiderate behaviour of the Straits Times. They are willing to advance their own agenda, without regard to the harmful impact on other people.
In my dealing with other papers, including the foreign media, I generally find that they are more considerate.
