Let's Work Together To Rebuild Nigeria - Buhari To New Journalists' Union President

President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday congratulated Mr. Abdulwaheed Odusile of the Nation Newspapers on his election as the new President of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ).

President Buhari in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said he believes that with Odusile’s worthy credentials, long experience and antecedents as a highly respected and reputable professional, he can be expected to discharge his new responsibility of leading the NUJ to greater heights of accomplishment with distinction.

The President assured 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 revitalise 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.

The President said he looks forward to working in a harmonious partnership with Odusile, the new NUJ executive and media practitioners in Nigeria as the Federal Government strives to end the scourge of Boko Haram, improve national security, rebuild and expand national infrastructure, accelerate the pace of economic development across the country and create more employment opportunities for Nigerian youth.

President Buhari wished Odusile and other newly-elected executive officers of the NUJ a very successful tenure in the service of their profession and country. (THEWILL)
