The Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) is desirous to see positive changes in the country, Samuel Oseloka, a Council Member, has said.

“The Nigeria we have today is different from what it used to be.

“There is so much hatred, division, insecurity and anger and that is the reason many things are not working as expected.

“We want all that to end,’’ he said in Umuahia while addressing the newly-elected Executive Committee members of Abia chapter of the institute during its conference and annual general meeting.

He challenged the Abia chapter of the NIPR to assist in finding solutions to Nigeria’s challenges.

He said the most urgent task for the institute now is using its tools of practice to find solutions to the problems bedevilling the nation.

Oseloka enjoined the Abia Executive Committee members to convene a Citizens Summit which the institute hoped would galvanise views of Nigerians from all walks of life to get solutions to the nation’s current challenges.

“Much effort had been made to solve Nigeria’s problems over time, but those efforts failed because the solutions proffered did not come from the people, but were handed down to them by leaders.

“That is why we in NIPR want to get the views of stakeholders through engaging Nigerians in a Citizens Summit for lasting solutions.

“I believe that Abia can organise a worthwhile Citizens Summit,’’

Oseloka represented the NIPR president, Alhaji Sirajo Mukhtar, at the annual general meeting.

He also challenged members of the Abia chapter of the NIPR to stand out as professionals wherever they went and in whatever they did in the realisation that they represent the institute.

In his acceptance speech, the new chairman, Mr Anyaso Anyaso, thanked the chapter for re-electing him and other members of the committee,

“Leadership is not a joke, but a huge responsibility and that means that our re-election remains work-in-progress,’’ Anyaso, also the Director-General, Abia Broadcasting Corporation, said.
