The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Anambra State Council, has congratulated Prof Charles Soludo on his victory in the Nov. 6 governorship election in the state.
The NUJ also congratulated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security agencies, Civil Society Organizations, (CSOs) and other stakeholders that worked tirelessly to achieve a hitch-free and credible election.
The union disclosed this in a statement Monday signed by the acting chairman and secretary, Francis Ekpone and Emma Udeagha, respectively.
It also commended all the 18 political parties that participated in the election and their standard bearers, for their exemplary peaceful conducts.
The union noted that other states should see Anambra election as a huge lesson, especially on the peaceful conduct of parties and their candidates.
Describing Prof Soludo’s triumph in the hotly-contested election, as an ‘act of God’, the NUJ called on him to utilize his wealth of knowledge to consolidate on the achievements of his predecessors.
The council pledged to partner his administration, and support genuine efforts for good governance in order to realize Government/Media shared responsibility of ensuring that the people are adequately and accurately informed.
