National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Abdulwaheed Odusile on Thursday, June 22, 2017 paid a courtesy visit to the Headquarters of Sports Radio 88.9 Brila FM in Lagos.
Odusile who doubles as President, Federation of African Journalists (FAJ) was warmly welcomed and received by the Chairman/CEO Brila Media Dr Larry Izamoje.
Dr Izamoje later introduced the NUJ boss to members of the station’s management team plus key members of staff who form the journalistic core of the organisation.
For his first visit to Brila FM, Odusile was able to explain the NUJ’s plans to check the menace of fake journalists through registration. He intimated everyone present on how the NUJ will complete the task through the biometric registration of its members following their completion of the online process on http://www.nuj.org.ng.
While noting that the exercise was not a witch-hunt, Odusile stressed that the biometric registration is a must as scannable ID Cards will be allocated. According to him, members will get ID cards that will be valid for three years.
