*Beats Odusile in Abeokuta 346 - 329 votes

Comrade Christopher Ikechukwu Isiguzo, has been elected new President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), defeating the incumbent  Wahab Odusile, who sought to retain his seat for another term. 

In a keenly-contested election Isiguzo emerged the choice of majority of the journalists, who were on hand at the city of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, which hosted this year’s edition of the NUJ National Convention with a tally of 346-329.

Already, Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, has congratulated the newly elected NUJ, boss, while commending the union for a peaceful outing. 

Umahi in a statement signed by his spokesman, Emmanuel Uzor, described the newly elected National President of NUJ as a thorough journalist, a professional who placed high premium on professionalism and balanced reportage. 

The governor in the statement further congratulated the newly elected National Vice President of the union in South East, Mr Petrus Obi and called on journalists to engine the true reflection of their calling by upholding balanced reportage. 

"Let me congratulate Chris Isiguzo, the newly elected National President of NUJ as well as Petrus Obi, the New National Vice President in charge of South East for their resounding victories in the recently concluded elections. Journalists have shown that our agitation for change of attitude and politics of inclusiveness is yielding positive results. I therefore urge the new leadership of NUJ to ensure from weeks and months ahead ensure retooling of journalists to the modern trend of reportage."
