Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, has said that the emergence of Mr. Eze Anaba as new President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors was a thing of joy for him and the entire people of God's Own State.

Anaba, who is the Editor of Vanguard Newspapers, was elected to lead the NGE at the biennial national convention held recently in Owerri, Imo State.

"The people of Abia State are indeed glad to have you as one of their illustrious sons and hope that you will use your new office to work towards the realisation of their dream of a progressive and prosperous Abia," Otti said.

He expressed his feelings in a press release issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Kazie Uko, noting that the election of Anaba to pilot the affairs of NGE for the next two years "is an eloquent testimony to (his) leadership qualities".

The Abia chief executive also noted that Anaba's victory was "a demonstration of confidence" reposed in him by his fellow editors. This, according to him, was evident in the overwhelming number of votes won by the Vanguard Editor to emerge victorious.

The Abia governor also congratulated the entire members of NGE, especially the Organising Committee of the convention, "for putting up a rancour-free event, thereby holding a free, fair and peaceful election that has now brought about the new leadership".

"It is our prayer that your tenure will see to the continued strengthening of the Guild, work to promote the welfare, well-being and rights of journalists in Nigeria," Otti told Anaba.

He enjoined him to ensure that practitioners continue to imbibe and adhere to the ethics of the noble profession of journalism in Nigeria.
