Media practitioners have once again been charged to continually seek and phold the ethics of the pen profession by shunning yellow journalism, providing true and credible information and remaining pro-active.
These were part of the submission of Mr. Olusegun Adeyemi, the State Director, National Orientation Agency when he received in his office, during a courtesy call, the Executive members of the NOA Chapel of NUJ, Kwara State Council, led by its chairman, Comrade Adegbayibi Ajibade.
Adeyemi, who congratulated the executive members on their emergence as leaders of the union urged them to put their acts together in building a virile society and practicing journalism according to the highly cherished ethics of the profession.
The NOA Director, who is equally a member of the Chapel, further assured the union of maximum support from the NOA Management in Kwara, saying that every necessary thing would be done to ensure that the NOA Chapel grows strong. He emphasized that the activities of NOA are journalistic in nature; hence a union that assists in promoting the mission and vision of the Agency should be adequately supported. He also encouraged the leadership to be open and adequately inform its members about the activities of the NUJ Kwara State Council, for maximum participation.
In his reaction, Comrade Adegbayibi Ajibade, the NOA Chapel of NUJ Chairman commended the State Director for taking active interest in the establishment of the union as well as its activities since inception.
