NUJ Inaugurates Executives Of New Corporate Online Chapel In Enugu



With the installation of executive members in the Corporate Online Chapel, the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) now has eleven (11) chapels in the NUJ Enugu State Council. Chief Sam Udekwe, the Chairman of NUJ, Enugu State Council, encouraged the new executive members to bring all members of the chapel along during the inauguration of the new chapel on Thursday in Enugu. Udekwe counselled them to make sure chapel members adhere to the principles of objectivity and honesty, which the council upholds as members of the journalism community.


He said, “This chapel will continue to grow. This is a very promising chapel. You have your council membership now, I want to assure you that more members will continue to come.


“You know what it takes to be qualified to be a member. It is not open to just anybody. It is not open to all bloggers, that is why we say it is Corporate Online Chapel. It is for online practitioners that are journalists.


“There are online publishers that are not journalists. So we want you to make a difference and show the society that there are online practitioners, the ones that are members of the NUJ,” he said.
