The Kogi State council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has congratulated Mr Babatunde Irukera on his re-appoinment as the Director-General of the
Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC).
The council in a statement in Lokoja on Tuesday described the re-appoinment of Irukera as well deserved and a confirmation of his sterling performance in his first term in office.
The state NUJ Council Chairman and Secretary, Mr Adeiza Jimoh and Mr Adamu Seidu signed the statement.
“Your re-appointment, no doubt is a reward for diligence, hardwork, patriotism and above all commitment to protecting the rights of the consumers in the country.
“It is also a demonstration of the fact that we still have people who are genuinely interested in building a country that will be a pride to generations yet unborn,” the statement said.
The NUJ said it was proud to be associated with Irukera and his track records of achievements in FCCPC, urging him to keep the flag flying.
“We pray God to continue to give you the wisdom and good health to discharge the responsibilities of your present office,” the statement added.
