The report states that CAMPAN members convened the meeting with the Bishop of Lafia Diocese to deliberate on ways for effective media engagement in the Nigerian Diocese.
In his message, Bishop Ajang urged Catholic communicators in Nigeria to foster collaboration and work on strategic plans that guide their respective goals and actions. He also underlined the need for coherence in their communication apostolate.
He went on to warn CAMPAN members against the “temptation to only be functional at events and to fall into oblivion, only to reappear at another event”.
The head of the Nigerian Catholic Church who was appointed bishop in March 2021 and has been at the head of the diocese of Lafia since his Episcopal ordination in June 2021 rented
congratulated the national director of social communications in Nigeria, Fr. Michael Nsikak Umoh and his team for carrying out the visit and called on Catholic media professionals in the West African country to support apostolic communication in the Nigerian dioceses.
In his speech, Fr. Umoh is said to have challenged the members of CAMPAN to integrate faith into their communication apostolate “and to always defend the truth”.
“The most basic ingredient of the media profession is truth, and truth is what the Church stands for as an institution,” he said.
The Nigerian Catholic Priest emphasized the need for Catholic communicators to exercise their apostolate in a manner that brings “the welfare of society and the advancement of the dignity of the human person.”
