President Muhammadu Buhari has called on the newly elected President of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) Mr. Abdulwaheed Odusile and his newly elected executive team to work with him as he works to build Nigeria.
This is just as President Buhari congratulated Mr. Odusile of the Nation Newspapers on his election as the new President of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), in a keenly contested election last weekend.
A statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said President Buhari believes that with his worthy credentials, long experience and antecedents as a highly respected and reputable professional, Mr. Odusile can be expected to discharge his new responsibility of leading the NUJ to greater heights of accomplishment with distinction.
“The President assured Mr. Odusile and the newly elected executive officers of the NUJ of the fullest support and cooperation of the Federal Government as they move to reposition and revitalize the journalism profession in Nigeria for present and future challenges, including the revolutionary impact of new technologies on communications and information dissemination.”
President Buhari further assured the new NUJ President and all journalists in Nigeria that his Administration will consistently uphold their right to perform their constitutionally assigned role in society without hindrance
