The Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE, has expressed shock over the death of the Editor of Port Harcourt- based The Tide newspaper, Mrs Juliet Ejiowhor.
Mrs Njiowhor died on Saturday after a brief illness.
According to a statement by the Guild, “She was a two-term Standing Committee member representing the Eastern Zone. She was at the 2021 NGE convention in Kano where she contested for the position of a Treasurer.
“Mrs Njiowhor’s death has robbed the Guild of a committed member, who never missed any of its events since joining the organisation.
