By Steve Oko

Correspondents Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Abia State Council, has commended the newly-inaugurated State Governor, Dr Alex Otti on his choice of veteran media practitioners as his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity and Chief Press Secretary, CPS.

In a press release Wednesday issued after it’s monthly Congress, the Chapel described the appointment of former Guardian staff, Kazie Ukoh; and Ferdinand Ekeoma, as CPS and Special Adviser on Media and Publicity respectively as putting square pegs in square holes.

The release which was jointly signed by the Chairman, Comrade Obinna Ibe; and Secretary, Henrietta Ashikodi, commended Otti for considering experienced media practitioners for both positions.

Meanwhile, the Chapel has appealed to the Governor to also consider an experienced professional journalist or Mass Communication practioner as his Commissioner for Information.

According to the release, information management of a State Government is so sensitive that it should not be placed in the hands of people without journalism or Mass Communication background.

The Chapel argued that the appointment of seasoned media practitioner as Information Commissioner will make for more efficient information management and cordial relationship with media practitioners in the state.

Correspondents Chapel pledged the support of its members for the Governor in his bid to re-invent the state, while praying for God’s wisdom and guidance as he steers the state craft.
