A two-term Vice President of Zone E, and Presidential aspirant of NAWOJ, Ruth Abubakar, has released in what could be term as enviable track records in women journalism. Her records and immense achievements in unionism of women journalism was made available to news men as she gets set to become the president of the noble association .
full of wealth of experience, Ruth Abubaker has shown that she has what it takes to move the association to next level
Journalism, like any other profession is facing a lot of challenges globally and as members of the Fourth Estate of the Realm, NAWOJ is not spared from these challenges. Successive leaderships of the Association, including the outgoing one has made concerted efforts towards addressing some of the challenges but a lot still needs to be done in some areas
I intends to bring a paradigm shift that will eventually propel the Association to the next level of development. Over the years, I have gathered much experience in unionism, having been actively involved in the activities of NAWOJ and the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), as Secretary, Information Chapel in Gombe Council; pioneer Chairperson of NAWOJ Gombe council; and two-term Vice President of NAWOJ Zone E (North East), among other ad-hoc duties.
