The chairman urged the Federal Government to always bear in mind hazards attached to the job.
Dilibe said the norm that newsmen in the country were not well paid, well regarded or cared for should be changed and upgraded to what was obtainable in the Western world.
“The profession is filled with risks and is time consuming, as such practitioners should be well remunerated and catered for,’’ he said.
He consoled Mr Henry Nwasike, the Anambra Council’s Chairman and the entire journalists in the state over the loss and prayed that such occurrence will not occur in the nearest future.
Responding, Nwasike thanked the team for making out time to visit the council and assured that once the family of the deceased fixed a date for the internment, the council would be notified.
NAN reports that Mrs Chieso Aninwaagwa, Vice-President National Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) South-East and Mrs Ifeoma Amuta, Enugu NAWOJ Chairperson were also present at the condolence visit. (NAN)
