The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has congratulated Mustapha Isa on his re-election as President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors(NGE).
Lawan also congratulated other members of the executive of the Guild of Editors who were newly elected or re-elected on Tuesday, 1 June, 2021 by their fellow editors.
The Senate President praised the NGE for the success of the biennial convention in Kano and the peaceful conduct of the elections.
“The peaceful and orderly manner of the elections are a good example of how professional bodies should conduct their affairs. You therefore deserve plaudits for living up to the high expectations that society has of you as leaders of the fourth estate of the realm.
“In that light, I enjoin you to always consider the higher national interest of unity, peace, justice and progress as you discharge your critical role of gate keeping in your various media organisations.
“The Nigerian media have come a long way, therefore the editors cannot afford to fail in their responsibilities to the nation in this critical period of our national development,” Lawan said.
The Senate President wished the new executive a successful tenure.
