Ogun State hosts NUJ historic summit

Nigeria union of journalists (NUJ) will hold its first annual national summit in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, between Tuesday and Thursday.

Governor Ibikunle Amosun, who is the chief host of the summit, has said the gathering is historic, considering that the Nigerian media began in Abeokuta, with the publication of Nigeria’s first newspaper, Iwe Iroyin, in 1859 by a missionary, Henry Townsend.

Amosun also said that Nigeria’s first television station was the brainchild of late pa Obafemi awolowo, an Indigener of Ogun state, who also was the publisher of Nigeria’s only surviving oldest private newspaper, the tribune newspaper.

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo is scheduled to deliver a keynote address on media and national unity at the opening of the summit, being hosted by the Ogun state government.

Also expected to make remark at the summit are governors Akinwumi Ambode of Lagos state, Ibrahim Dankwabo of Gombe, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa, and Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto.

Others are Governor Abdulfattah Ahmed of Kwara state, and Interior Minister, Abduraman Dambazzau and his Information counterpart, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
