The event which held at ANUNSA secretariat in Fajuyi Hall, Obafemi Awolowo University was graced by prominent figures in the business of campus journalism on OAU Campus.
Addressing the inductees, the invited guest speakers at the event spoke at length on the need for the new inductees to imbibe the virtue of true campus journalism in every aspect of their practice. The new inductees were also admonished to never be part of partisan journalism or be allowed to be used as tools in the hands of some mischief makers.
The new inductees and other campus journalists present were also educated on the etiquette of true journalism and the need to be truthful in whatever situation they found themselves irrespective of whose ox is gored.
In his own remark, Mr Adetula David (the C.E.O of OAU Peeps and the immediate past Editor-in-Chief) welcomed the inductees to the fold and also congratulated them for being worthy enough to be part of the Agency. He tasked them on the need to take the Agency to greater heights while at the same time enriching themselves in the experience of true campus journalism and its embodiments.
There was also presentation of Awards of special recognition to two of the pioneer members of the Agency – Mr Adetula David (immediate past Editor-In-Chief) and Miss Dosunmu Deborah who have served the Agency at various capacities and are both graduating at the end of the current academic session.
