Barely some days to the 2015 general elections, the Anambra State Director, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr. George Njoku has called on the Fourth Estate of the Realm to eschew any inflammatory information which could ignite tension at course of their reportage during and after the polls.
Mr. Njoku gave the advise while playing host in his office members of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) NOA Correspondent Chapel on Friday, maintaining that journalists hold the society through the kinds of information they gather and disseminate to the general public.
He also charged the press to keep maintaining the ethical standard of objectivity and accuracy, even as he tasks the NOA Correspondent chapel to remain at the forefront of projecting and promoting the corporate image of the state, because according to him, their reports could make or mar the society.
Earlier briefing the Director on the mission behind the courtesy call, the Chairman of NUJ-NOA Chapel, Comrade Cyril Ezezue, pledged that the union would continue to support him towards achieving his objective in the state directorate of NOA.
