The National President, Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Mr. Chris Isiguzo, has tasked journalists to uphold their watchdog responsibility as the 2023 general elections draw nearer.
The NUJ president made the call in Bauchi on Monday, during a book launch written by the National Secretary of NUJ, Mr Shuaibu Leman, in marking his retirement as a civil servant.
According to him, journalists should be circumspect and disseminate only factual account of events.
Isiguzo described the author as a selfless man who had rendered a meritorious service to the NUJ, hence the array of journalists that turned up for the occasion to celebrate him.
In his remarks Leman said that the book was a compilation of what NUJ had done and what it had not succeeded in doing in the past 19 years.
