Inquirer publisher offers scholarship to intern
The publisher of The Abuja Inquirer Newspapers, one of the reliable and consistent weekly newspaper in Nigeria, Mr. Dan Akpovwa, has awarded a scholarship to an intern, Mr. William Abah.
Akpovwa, gave the scholarship, last week, during a send-forth party in honour of the assistant editor of the paper, Mr. Austine Elemue, who was recently appointed as Special Assistant on Media to FCT Minister of State, Dr. Ramatu Aliyu.
He charged editorial staff not to be stagnated in one position for years, assuring that management of the paper is willing to assist any serious editorial staff to move on to the next level in the journalism profession.
Akpovwa, who commended the spirit of dedication and commitment exhibited by the former assistant editor, also called on other staff to be more productive especially at this critical period of the profession.
"It is only commitment and dedication that make people to spot you. Wherever you find yourself, put in your very best and I can assure you that at the appointed time, people will locate you," he affirmed.
Earlier in his remarks, Mr. Elemue thanked the management and editorial staff for the honour, just as he noted that the support and encouragement he enjoyed from all staff will serve as a tonic in his new assignment.
He, however, appealed to management to organise an in-house training for members of the editorial staff, aimed at improving their skills in carrying out their duties.
