“These are people that have been stagnated over the years. We facilitated their promotion considering how such stagnation affected their morale.
Eze stressed that the management of the institution was not unmindful of the contribution of the media in advancing the course of the institution.
He appealed to the media to always portray the institution in good light, stressing that they should always see the ivory tower as a partner in progress.
In his remark, the Chairman of NUJ, Enugu State Council, Comrade Rex Arum, expressed satisfaction with the management of the institution for the modest achievements it had recorded within the short period.
He, however, solicited for collaboration between the state council of the NUJ and the institution in the training and retraining of journalists in the state.
