However, Mr. Mohammed Idris, Publisher of Blue Print newspaper, will step into the shoes of Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah, Chairman of Leadership Group, who has stepped down as Assistant Secretary because of his 2015 presidential ambition.
INEC Chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega said in his keynote address that the media has been forthright in its informative and agenda setting roles and a consistent defender of the underdogs.
Obaigbena had reiterated his earlier resolve to step aside, but added that given the current development and the confidence reposed in his team, he would accept the new challenge.
Earlier, the managing Director of Access Bank Plc, Mr. Herbert Wigwe, had commended the press for the confidence and support it has for the Nigerian business sector and most especially in his bank.
