THE President of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Alhaji Mohammed Abdullahi, has vowed to tackle quackery among public relations practitioners in the country.
Abdullahi spoke in Kano after his re-election for another term at this year’s annual conference/general meeting of the institute.
He promised to apply Sections 10 and 11 of the Act establishing NIPR to deal with unregistered public relations practitioners, adding that the time has come for the institute to uphold professionalism.
Promising to build on his past achievements, Abdullahi said the new council would make amends, where necessary, to move the institute to the next level.
According to him, the council will be amenable to suggestions and constructive criticisms.
He praised the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the institute for conducting a free, fair and credible election, noting that the success of the poll was an indication that Nigeria is heading towards conducting more credible general elections.
The NIPR president, who said Nigeria is passing through a traumatic experience, promised that the institute would build a positive image for the country.
He urged those who lost out in the election to accept the defeat in good fate, while pledging to carry them along for the next two years.
