The performance of the current Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Cross River State Council, Pastor Ndoma Akpet again came under knocks, but this time from the National Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ).
Pastor Akpet is the current chairman of NUJ, Cross River State who is seeking re-election for another term of three years of the union without a performance record to show.
Chairman of NAWOJ in Cross River State, Comrade Uduak Ikang Obeten dropped the bombshell when an aspirant for the position of the chairman went on a consultation visit to the number one female Journalist in the State.
“In fairness, If I want to rate the current Chairman of NUJ, Ndoma Akpet, I won’t give him above 30 percent pass mark.” she said.
According to wilkipedia, a percentage is a number or ratio expressed as a fraction of 100.
The performance of the state NUJ chairman by the definition of wikipedia is 30% in fraction which is well below average and far away in terms of mileage assessment using performance port folio ‘s ratio analysis and rated “FAIL”.
Uduak Ikang Obeten’s statement by virtue of her position was believed to be the general position of the women Journalists in Cross River State which form the large proportion of voters within the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Cross River State Council.
Recently, several stakeholders including a veteran and former chairman of NUJ in the state have made their position known on how they want the union which they all belong, to be.
They took a swipe on the current leadership of the Union led by Ndoma Akpet on how he’s running the State Council without record of performance in the last three years, urging journalists to vote for another leader who is more purposeful.
