Daily Trust - - CAMPUS ROUNDUP - From Cle­ment Philip Si­mon

The Gen­eral Man­ager of Nige­rian Tele­vi­sion Author­ity (NTA) Chan­nel 5, Abuja, Al­haji Hameed Adio, has com­mended the stu­dents of the Depart­ment of Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion at the Nasarawa State Univer­sity, Keffi, (NSUK) for their ex­em­plary con­duct while on me­dia at­tach­ment in his sta­tion.

“Since 2007, the sta­tion has been an­nu­ally giv­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to stu­dents of the depart­ment to do their three­month in­tern­ship pro­gramme, I have never had to com­plain about their be­hav­iour in all the years they have been com­ing,” he pointed out.

He re­vealed that the sta­tion, which is ded­i­cated to the cov­er­age of the Federal Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT) ad­min­is­tra­tion, has been win­ning “The Best Tele­vi­sion Sta­tion Award” in the Federal Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory.

“The value which the stu­dents added to the sta­tion has con­trib­uted to the win­ning of the awards,” said the man­ager.

Adio ad­vised the stu­dents that as jour­nal­ists, they should not be think­ing of how to make money and fame at the be­gin­ning, say­ing: “If you add value to the me­dia house you work for and if you gen­uinely con­trib­ute to the progress of the so­ci­ety, that is when the name and, maybe, money would come.

Adio was on the main cam­pus of the univer­sity, re­cently, to play the role of the Fa­ther of the Day at the launch­ing of a news writ­ing book au­thored by a 300level stu­dent of the depart­ment, Ah­mad Muham­mad Auwal, 22, who is an in­di­gene of Keffi Lo­cal Govern­ment Area.

He was con­ducted round the ra­dio/tele­vi­sion stu­dios of the depart­ment by the act­ing Head of Depart­ment, Mal­lam Muham­mad S. Rabi’u, in com­pany of a for­mer dean of arts at the univer­sity, Pro­fes­sor Olayemi Ak­in­wumi.

Cle­ment Philip Si­mon is a 200-Level stu­dent of Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion at Nasarawa State Univer­sity, Keffi.
