Contestants for various positions in the forthcoming delegate conference of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) have been urged to use their elected positions to sensitize members to be sincere in their facts and reports.
The Plateau state government made this known during the flagging-off campaign of Lucy Chindaba, who is vying for the position of National President of NAWOJ, in Jos on Wednesday.
Governor Simon Lalong was represented by the SGS, Prof. Danladi Atu, who said as members of pen professionals, NAWOJ has a lot in changing the society for the better.
Speaking also at the event, NAWOJ’s vice president for zone D, Jamilia Abubakar, said NAWOJ is in dire need of a go-getter, determined, dogged and fearless leader.
She also craved their indulgence to support the candidature of Lucy Chindaba, assuring that, this one venture they will never regret, and they will not be disappointed.
The Plateau state chairperson said, the candidate has continued to receive tremendous support since she was beckoned to accept and run the NAWOJ presidency during the forthcoming delegate conference in Minna, Niger state.
She said “This is because history is judging her right as one, who sacrificed a lot to place NAWOJ on the path of consistent progress,” and urged all to allow conscience to lead to vote a credible person “whose intention is, from the records we have, to restore the lost glory and integrity of NAWOJ in the country.”
