Journalists in Rivers State will be beaming with smiles once again as the Internet Centre, which was non-functional for years come on stream, Saturday July 8, 2006.

According to a statement issued by the NUJ State Secretary, Mr. Reward Akwu, the speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi will commission the centre.

This development, we gathered, will usher moments of active participation in union activities and enhance professional practice as well as attract public participation.

The event, which will also feature the meeting of zone F comprising the six states in the South-South, will be declared open by the state Commissioner of Information, Hon. Magnus Abe, Senator I.S. Martyns Yellowe billed, as the guest of honour will be the chairman of the occasion, a situation that will ensure another healthy interaction between journalists and politicians.

Mr. Akwu therefore called on journalists in the state to turn-out emass and grace the ceremony, which is coming after the recent triennial delegates conference held in Port Harcourt that resulted in the election of Mr. Ndagene Akwu as the National President.
Some of the Journalists who spoke to this publication described the event as the beginning of a new era of development, which will undoubtedly give credence to the desired professionalism.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
