The President of TeamNigeria4Change and an Alternative Security Expert, Otunba Bestman Nze-Jumbo has advised Political Office Holders to handle their information dissemination and management as well as Crisis Communications.
Otunba Bestman Nze-Jumbo gave this advise on Saturday while speaking during 2-Day Workshop organized by the Nigerian Guild of Investigative Journalists (NGIJ) at Radisson Hotel Ikeja.
Bestman Nze-Jumbo noted that governance communications is beyond news reporting and issuing of press releases but a technical job aspect which should be handle with care by grounded communication professionals who might not necessarily be a journalist.
According to him, some journalists who emerged as political office holders’ media handler at times fail to blend Public Relations techniques with their journalistic skills.
The TeamNigeria4Change President who is also a media influencer said appointing the wrong media handlers has killed career of many politicians prematurely
