The statement was signed by Mr Yakubu Gomos, Chairman, Local Organising Committee (LOC), of the institute’s 2019 retreat, dinner and award night.

The statement said that the retreat would feature paper presentations by experts, adding that the speakers would focus on how to reposition public relations practice for better service delivery.
It added that the event would also witness the unveiling of the NIPR directorate in Plateau.
