The Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA), the umbrella body of journalists covering the automotive sector, has appointed its Vice Chairman, Tajudeen Adebanjo as Acting Chairman following the suspension, last Friday, of the chairman, Mike Ochonma.
According to NAJA, Ochonma was suspended over his alleged involvement in a parallel association, among other allegations.
Already, NAJA has set up a three-man committee to investigate allegations against the suspended Chairman.
Meanwhile, the association has advised automotive stakeholders and the general public to disregard a false report circulating about the purported suspension of the Vice Chairman, adding that “the fake report was the handiwork of those working against the interest of NAJA“.
The Acting Chairman has, therefore, assured stakeholders in the sector that all hands are on deck to restore confidence in NAJA to enable it add immense value to the nation’s automotive industry.
