State House Press Corps Picks Anule As Chairman, 8 Others, By Election

Journalists covering the Presidency, under the auspices of State House Press Corps (SHPC), have picked a representative of AFP, Dr. Emmanuel Anule as their chairman.
Anule was elected today, April 28, by 96-member Press Corps, along with eight others, barely 34 days to the Inauguration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The election is coming after nearly two years of ad-hoc leadership as a result of COVID19 pandemic.
Dr. Anule, after the election, regretted that the pandemic had sought to disintegrate members of the Corps and promised that the first priority of his leadership would be to unite members for common purposes.
He also promised to lead through consultations and regular members interactions.
Those who were elected along with Dr. Anule are:

Alhaji Hassan Umar Farouk of Liberty Radio/Television as Vice chairman

Sunday Ode of the People’s Daily as Secretary

Hajiya Raliat Adenekan of Beat/Classic FM as Assistant Secretary
