The National Association of Christian Journalists (NACJ) has nominated Senator Victor Umeh who represented Anambra Central in the 8th Senate for its integrity personality of the year award.
A statement signed by the president of the association, Dr Charles Tola Okhai, said the nomination was predicated on Umeh’s impressive track record of self-discipline, transparency, professional exploits, honesty and selfless service to humanity with high sense of integrity.
