“My appointment in the United Nations is because of the support from the media in Kaduna State,” he stressed. 

According to Buru, the year 2022 NUJ Kaduna Media Parley was the eighth year he was celebrating with Journalists in Kaduna, adding that the purpose for the dinner was to acknowledge what journalists were doing for peace in Nigeria and beyond. He said that journalists deserve all the honour. 

“The New Leadership of NUJ is doing a good work and I can see the clear difference, the environment is looking good,” Buru added.
