  1. Akwa Ibom NUJ Chairman uses publishers and reporters as collateral to get money from Government and politicians

    Thomas Thomas, A senior editor of a popular Uyo-based newspaper (Global Concord) widely regarded for its critical views of the Akwa Ibom State government said that Akwa Ibom State NUJ chairman Elder Patrick Albert Uses Publisher and reporter in the state as collateral to get money from the State Government and politicians.

    An unprofessional journalist is not a man or woman who comes out boldly to declare his or her stand, but the one who necodemusly executes hatchet jobs for politicians and government. An unprofessional journalist is not a practitioner who deliberately refuses to join NUJ for obvious reasons, but a man who can’t defend those he swore to defend.

    Some days ago, the State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, parleyed the media in the State (even though Mr. Albert had conspired with the State Information Commissioner to bar the critical media houses from participating for obvious reasons), and at the end of the parley, the Governor doled out 50 Million Naira to journalists in the State. Out of the said amount, I learnt Mr. Albert reluctantly gave out 100,000.00 each to about 50 Publishers, 50,000.00 each to about 90 reporters, and allegedly coasted home with over 30 Million Naira.
