NDAN elects new executives, seek support for vendors
The Newspapers Distribution Association of Nigeria (NDAN) has elected new executives. It was established in 1989 to bring all agents and vendors nationwide together for the purpose of understanding themselves, promoting the general welfare of members, provide means to live in unity and harmony and contribute their quota to the progress, of the country.
Speaking at the swearing-in of the newly elected executive members of Lagos Island zone at Kakawa, the chairman, Mr. Godwin Akpan, called on government and media house owners to alleviate their plight.
“Government should step up effort by urgently reducing the cost of newspapers and magazines production so that the cover prices could also come down for people to be able to afford it. People prefer to go through the headlines or read on the social media platforms. This is affecting the newspaper business seriously.”
“Also, government and media owners should empower and educate distributors and vendors in their operations, to provide insurance cover for vendors in case of accident,” he said.
Akpan commended the outgoing chairman, Mr. Bola Folorunsho and his executives as well as the patron and matron of the union, Alhaji Remyon and Chief (Mrs) Joko-Ojomo, for a successful tenure.
