The member representing Yagba Federal Constituency of Kogi state in the National Assembly, Hon. Leke Abejide has decried the poor facilities at the Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Lokoja.
Honourable Abejide who made a brief stop over at the Union’s Secretariat while on his way to the Congress of African Democratic Congress in Lokoja weekend, said journalists deserve a better working environment.
Apparently worried that the units of air conditioners he earlier donated to the Union have not been put to use, the lawmaker promised to donate a 20KVA generator to reduce the power problems at the Secretariat.
He described the media as the bridge between the government and governed and urged journalists to abide by the ethics of their profession at all times.
Responding, the Kogi State chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Adeiza Momohjimoh appreciated the lawmaker for his numerous assistance to the Union.
He described Honourable Abejide as a shinning example of who true representative of the people should be.
Adeiza said the lawmaker’s intervention in education has brought succour to parents and students whose WAEC and NECO fees he pays annually in his federal constituency.
” Honourable Abejide has truly distinguished himself as a true emancipator of the common man. His interventions in roads construction, education and other empowerment programmes indeed helped in reducing the pains of the poor people’
Adeiza promised the collaboration and support of all working journalists in the state to the programmes and Policies of Hon. Abejide.
