Delta State: Ministerial Press briefing suspended

Delta State Ministry of Information Summit Road, Asaba

It was with profound shock and sadness that the news of the sudden demise of three officials of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) reach me. The officials from the Lagos Council of the Union were involved in a ghastly auto accident last week.

As a result, the on-going Ministerial Mid-Term Press Conference by commissioners in Delta State is hereby suspended for one week in honour of the three officials who paid the supreme price in their commitment to serve their members and improve the climate for media practice.
The suspension affects the briefings scheduled for Tuesday, August 6 and Thursday, August 8, 2013.

On behalf of the Government and People of Delta State, I extend my heartfelt condolence to the NUJ and media practitioners in Nigeria. We pray the Almighty to grant the souls of the departed eternal rest. To their families and the media community, we pray for divine succor.
The ministerial briefings will resume on Tuesday, August 13, 2013.

Honourable Commissioner for Information
Monday, August 5, 2013
