The Kogi State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists has called on newsmen in the state to allow ethics of the profession take center stage.

Chairman of the Council, Comr. Adeiza Momoh Jimoh, made the call in Lokoja on Thursday at the 2022 NUJ Press Week.

Jimoh urged journalists not to allow politicians use them against the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello.

While saying it was unprofessional to report a story from only one perspective, the Chairman described false media reports as “criminal and very ungodly”.

“I urge our colleagues not to allow themselves to be used by unscrupulous politicians who may be out to run down the Government of Kogi State for whatever reasons. The Governor has done very well. We celebrate him,” he said.

At the ceremony, the Union recognised the efforts made by the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello, especially in the health and education sectors, and bestowed an award of exemplary performance on the Governor.

On how the Governor earned the award, the Chairman said, “We did not just decide to celebrate Governor Yahaya Bello, some steps led to it. As a team, we embarked on a tour of public projects in education and health; we visited State-owned universities; we visited CUSTECH and the GYB Model Schools, and the members of the union were all very impressed with what we saw in terms of infrastructure.

“The next day, we visited Kogi State Specialist Hospital and we saw the impact the government has made in terms of infrastructure. We saw the remodeling of the hospital, the administrative block and other units put in place by the Yahaya Bello administration.”
