The convention, which  had the theme, ‘The Media in COVID-19 Era: Challenges  and Opportunities’ and lasted  from  May 30 to June 2, 2021, lived its billing with President  Muhammadu Buhari, through the host governor, Umar Ganduje, charging  the media professionals to partner  his government  in the effort  to rid the country of fake news  and practices capable  of undermining  the unity of the  country.

In fact, she is over-due for this but it does  not come  that  easy.  It takes thorough and rigorous  processes and I am  happy  that she has finally made it.  It is purely  for those who have distinguished themselves  in  the media practice and for her to have narrowly  missed it in Asaba, Delta State, during  the 2019 convention, only to be re-introduced in 2021 and conferred with the award shows  the steel in her stature.”
