Iziguzo’s reelection as NUJ President shows approval of his leadership – Niger’s Gov Bello
Niger State Governor and Chairman, North Central States Governor’s Forum (NCSGF), Abubakar Sani Bello has described the reelection of Comrade Chris Isiguzo as President of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) and his team as a reflection and approval of his leadership ability.
The Governor stated this in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mary Noel Berje, in Minna, the state capital.
He applauded the hitch-free conduct of the election and tasked Comrade Isiguzo and his team to relentlessly pursue their agenda of revamping the journalism profession to its deserved pedestal in the country.
The Governor described journalists as essential partners of government in the task of nation-building while urging the leadership of Comrade Isiguzo to ensure it identifies and eliminates those quacks smearing the image of the noble profession in the country.
The statement reads, “I believe in the abilities of the NUJ President and his team to use their wealth of experience in addressing most of the challenges that affect the practice of journalism profession in the country, particularly the welfare of its members”.
Bello also charged journalists to always imbibe high ethical standards and social responsibility in the discharge of their duties, especially reportage on security challenges and other sociopolitical agitations in the country that calls for a nationalistic approach to reporting.
“You must always remember that you are role models and society’s focal lens, hence the need to be exemplary in the discharge of your duties for the growth and development of the Journalism profession in particular and the country in general”, he stated.
While wishing the newly-elected president and his team a successful tenure, Bello stated that his administration will continue to align with the credible leadership of the union to reposition the Media industry.
Comrade Chris Isiguzo and members of the NWC were reelected at the Union’s 7th Triennial Delegates Conference held, Thursday, in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.
