Nigeria: Malami Hails Leadership Chairman's Decision to Step Down As E-I-C

The Sarkin Sudan of Wurno, Amb. Alhaji Shehu Malami has congratulated the chairman of the LEADERSHIP Group of newspapers, Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah for his decision to step down as the editor-in chief of the fleet of newspapers.

Amb. Malami made this known in a hand-written letter to Mr. Nda-Isaiah where he noted that the LEADERSHIP group chairman had painstakingly nurtured the newspaper title and taken it to its pinnacle.

Nda-Isaiah had published on the front page of the LEADERSHIP Tuesday edition that from March 2013 he would step down as the editor-in-chief of the group of newspapers. He affirmed that he would remain the chairman of the newspapers and its subsidiary companies and maintain his column, Last Word which is published on the back page of the LEADERSHIP on Mondays as well as being responsible for the views expressed therein.

Amb. Malami also expressed his best wishes to the management of the newspaper and reminded them that the challenges of maintaining a good name and improving upon it were enormous.

"Kindly accept my congratulations on your voluntary retirement from the exacting position of the editor-in-chief of the LEADERSHIP Newspaper Group. The retirement is well deserved as you have successfully toiled through thick and thin for the group to reach its present pinnacle," Malami said.
