The vice-chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) Professor Vincent Tenebe, yesterday donated 100 Press jackets to the Kaduna state council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), to give its members easy identification as they go about their duty.

Making the donation, Professor Tenebe said the nature of the journalism profession expose them to hazards of the profession, which according to him, can be checked by easy identification and therefore, the need for the Press jacket. Professor Tenebe, who was represented by the Deputy Registrar, Dr. John Obaji, said the Press jackets will also assist in the area of identifying and fishing out quack journalists, who go about with cameras and recorders deceiving the public that they are the members of the journalism profession.

Speaking while receiving the Press jackets, the chairman of the Kaduna state council of the NUJ, Yusuf Idris, thanked the NOUN vice-chancellor for the gesture, adding that the step by the VC has demonstrated that he is indeed a friend of the Press.
