The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, on behalf of the entire people of Abia State, congratulates Mr. Eze Anaba, Editor of Vanguard Newspapers, on his election as the President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE).
Your election at the Biennial National Convention, which held recently in Owerri, Imo State, to lead the Guild for the next two years is an eloquent testimony to your leadership qualities and a demonstration of confidence your colleagues repose in you. This is evident in the overwhelming number of votes that won you the victory.
His Excellency, the Governor, would also like to congratulate the entire Guild and, particularly, the Organising Committee of the convention, for putting up a rancour-free event, thereby holding a free, fair and peaceful election that has now brought about the new leadership.
The people of Abia State are indeed glad to have you as one of their illustrious sons and hope that you will use your new office to work towards the realisation of their dream of a progressive and prosperous Abia.
It is our prayer that your tenure will see to the continued strengthening of the Guild, work to promote the welfare, well-being and rights of journalists in Nigeria as well as ensure that practitioners continue to imbibe the ethics of the noble profession of journalism.
