Nigerian Guild of Editors distances self from Foundation for Transparency - ITREALMS

The Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) has distanced itself from any link or connection with a non-governmental organisation, Foundation for Transparency and Accountability over an award and issuance of certificates to some people, reports ITREALMS.

The General Secretary, Mary Atolagbe in a press statement made available to 
ITREALMS, said the attention of the Nigerian Guild of Editors, has been drawn "to an award and issuance of Certificates to some people by Foundation for Transparency and Accountability, a Non Governmental Organisation, in collaboration with Nigeria Guild of Editors, on 10th May, 2019."

The Nigerian Guild of Editors, she said, as the umbrella professional body for the leadership of print, broadcast and online media in Nigeria has no affiliation with the Foundation for Transparency and Accountability and the purported Nigeria Guild of Editors.

Also, she said, the Nigerian Guild of Editors "hereby dissociates itself from the Foundation and the purported award on the 10th of May, 2019."

Atolagbe insisted that the Guild is not in any way privy to the foundation’s activities and in fact, "does not know or recognise the Foundation for Transparency and Accountability."

Further, she said, the Guild has never had any collaboration with the NGO and does not in any way intend to engage in any dealings whatsoever with the organisation.

"The Guild hereby informs the Nigerian public that, in its almost six decades of existence as a professional body of leaders in the Nigerian media, it does not give awards and has never given award to any individual, corporate, government or public entities," she declared.
