Nigerian League of Veteran Journalists, NILVEJ, has advocated life insurance policies for journalists covering the Covid-19 pandemic across the country.

President of NILVEJ, Chief Oliver Okpala, in his New Year message made available to newsmen in Abuja, stressed the need for the management of various media organizations to float such insurance policies for their staff in line with the best global practices.

Chief Okpala advised journalists to ensure that they comply with the Covid-19 protocol especially as they are often exposed to hazards being on the front line of reporting the ravaging global pandemic.

According to Chief Okpala, Journalists must approach the New Year with a zest that imbues them to discharge their duties without fear or favor in line with the time-tested tenets of the profession.

He says they must remain upright and forthright because their role in nation-building has even become more apparent given the enormous challenges confronting the nation on different fronts.

The former Senior Special Adviser to the Anambra state Governor on media maintains that the society is looking up to the media to give a sense of direction on how critical issues such as the economy, security, and health could be handled to put the country on the right footing.
