Nasarawa: Governor Sule Approves Renovation Of NUJ Centre

Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has approved the renovation of the Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Lafia the state Capital.

Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Ibrahim Angbolo, made the disclosure during a courtesy call at the NUJ press centre on Tuesday in Lafia.

According to him, Governor Sule is undertaking the project because of the critical role members of the union are playing towards propagating the policies and programmes of the state government to the outside world.

“The renovation will cover total upgrading of the structure and installation of the state-of-the-art facilities to make it a modern building,” he added.

Angbolo said his visit was aimed at familiarising himself with the leadership of the union and other critical stakeholders in the information sector with a view to strengthening the existing partnership.

“This is my first official assignment outside the ministry and I have decided to start with the union because of how important journalists are to us.

“We are going to work with you and other critical stakeholders to propagate the things that the state government has been doing across the state.

“You know, Governor Abdullahi Sule has done a lot and is still doing much in different sectors of the economy to better the lives of the citizens,” the commissioner noted.

Angbolo further said that the governor had invested a lot in security, infrastructure, agriculture, education, youth and women empowerment, and human capital development, among others. 

Responding, Salihu Mohammed-Alkali, the NUJ Chairman, commended the commissioner and his team for the visit and recognition.

The NUJ chairman said the gesture by the governor to remodel and upgrade the press centre would never be forgotten by the entirety of journalists in the state. 

Mohammed-Alkali, however, assured the commissioner that journalists in the state would continue to do their work professionally devoid of sentiment.

“NUJ and by extension, all journalists will collaborate with the state government and other stakeholders to propagate its activities with a view of making the state better,” the chairman stated.
