Journalists Told To Amend Their Ways – TRIBUTE TO LATE ENENCHE
Journalists have been told to amend their ways and live a righteous life, and put God first in their professional undertakings; to always trust in God and be prepared at any time when death comes.
The Plateau State NUJ chairman, Mr Yakubu Taddy, disclosed this during a Funeral Service in honour of late Mr Adikwu Eloyi Enenche, which held at Harvest Rock Church Worldwide International, at Madonna Tourist Jos, Plateau State, on Wednesday.
He observed that most journalists do not think of their faith – “how strong they are in their faith, and do not ponder to ask, ‘what will happen if I died today?’ ‘Am I prepared?’ We should put God first in our practicing of journalism so that we can be among those that will see the Kingdom of God,” he said.
Mr Taddy said since the moment the late Enenche joined the Council two years ago, he stepped in with a sense of responsibility, which his spiritual life – also impacted as wise council – became a useful in his daily decision making.
The late Adikwu Eloyi Enenche died at the age of 49 years (from 1967 to 2016). He was born into the family of late Mr Adikwu Odobo Eloyi of Atakpa Agatu, in Agadu local government council of Benue State.
Until his death, he was a correspondent of Verbatine Magazine in plateau state, and has worked in Himma Private Shool, Maiduguri, with NTA in Jalingo, and also worked with the Conscience Triumph Newspaper, Kaduna.
He is survived by Mrs Rose Enenche (Wife), Daniel Enenche (Son), Oumochi Enenchi (Son), brothers, sisters, uncles and aunties. He was buried on Thursday in his home town, Agadu.
