‘Weed Out Quacks From The System’ – Information Minister Charges NIPR

Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris Malagi has charged the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) to weed out quacks from information management in the country.


Malagi handed down the charge on Tuesday during the Inauguration of Council and induction of new members of the institute in Abuja.


The minister who inaugurated the newly elected council said it’s in line with the provisions of the Act, CAP N114, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that established the institute as the nation’s only professional body charged with the responsibility to regulate the practice and development of public relations in both private and public sectors in the country.


While exalting the birthing of the idea that led to the formation of the institute 60 years ago, he said reputation is one of the key pillars in nation building and plays strategic roles in development of any nation.
