For Hon. Chijioke Edeoga once a journalist, always

By Fred Iwenjora

Enugu state Commissioner for Local Government Matters Rt. Hon. Chijioke Jonathan Edeoga is currently proving the fact that once a journalist, always.

A life in which the urge to write, edit, read and proofread never ceases.

Aside from his giant strides in the running of his ministry, Edeoga has not forgotten his main calling which is communication.

The former Chairman House of Reps Committee on information who was aide to President Goodluck Jonathan is currently Editor In Chief of ENUGU LG NEWS, an avenue he says helps “propagate Enugu government activities while informing the general populace and entertaining the reader”.

In a recent chat with Newsmakers, Edeoga said it is difficult for the literary man, the journalist to forget his trade.”I feel the importance of effective communications at all times and when it has to do with government the need is much greater because it is the bridge between government and the people. The people itch to know about their government and the newsmagazine provides this information. It feels good to coordinate a newsroom once again.
