The leadership of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Edo State Council has charged the newly sworn-in Chairmen of Local Government Councils in Edo state to appoint their Press Secretaries and media aids from practicing journalists in the state.

In a joint statement signed by the Chairman of the Edo state council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists , Comrade Festus Alenkhe and Secretary, Comrade Andy Egbon, the union said the charge became necessary in order to ensure professionalism in the handling of media related matters in the grassroot government.

The union noted that there is need to depart from the old order where things were done without recourse to professionalism, a development, the union added, was counter-productive.

The old order, the NUJ noted has failed to yield the desired result.

The statement said , the engagement of professional journalists into the local government media team will boost the publicity of such local government administration.
