NUJ Plateau Eelects First Female Chairman

By Fuseh Markus

Mrs Ayuku Pwaspo has emerged as the first female chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Plateau Council, after almost 50 years of its existence.

Our correspondent reports that Pwaspo of the Plateau Radio Television Corporation (PRTVC) chapel on Thursday polled 121 votes to defeat Mr Ralph Madugu of Impact chapel, who scored 114 votes during the council rerun election on Thursday.

The two contestants had a tie with 114 votes each during the council election on Sept. 8, hence the rerun.

In her acceptance speech, Pwaspo thanked operating Journalists in the State for the confidence bestowed on her to lead, saying that she would not disappoint them in the discharge of her duties.

‘’The Plateau State Council of the NUJ has added its name to the annals of history by electing the first female Chairman,” she said.

She promised to deliver on the promises made during her campaign and appealed to members of the council to support her.

“I am therefore, challenging every member of this council to track me up on promises made in my manifesto as I am committed to surely fulfil them through the help of God and with your cooperation,” she added.
