Osoba, Okupe set for NIJ maiden Alumni convention

Mr. Okupe will deliver the main lecture at the convention.
A veteran journalist and former Governor of Ogun State,  Olusegun Osoba, will lead other Nigerian dignitaries to Abeokuta, the Ogun State Capital for the maiden convention of the Nigeria Institute of Journalism Alumni Association.

The  convention, which holds at the Mokland Hotels, Ibara Housing Estate in Abeokuta, according to the Local Organising Committee, is slated for November 31 to December 1 with Mr. Osoba  as Chief Guest of Honour.

The main lecture of the convention titled: ‘’Government Management of Public Opinion for National Development’’ will be delivered by Doyin Okupe, the Senior Special Adviser (Public Affairs)  to President Goodluck Jonathan.

Similarly, a Professor at the Lagos State University, Lai Oso,  will deliver a roundtable lecture titled: ‘’Between Iwe Irohin and Emergence of the Social Media: ‘’An Assessment of the Credibility of Information’’ on Friday November 30.

The convention will also be used to elect new national officers that will run the affairs of the association for the next three years. It is seen as a  great avenue for a re-union of old students of the Institute, a citadel of journalism training established in October 1971.

The institute  has trained a lot of media practitioners in Nigeria.
