The Registrar/Chief Executive of the Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON), Dr. Olalekan Fadolapo has urged new members to be Ambassadors of the Council in any location they find themselves, by adhering strictly to the Advertising ethics and helping in the implementation of APCON rules and regulations.
Dr. Fadolapo made the statement in his remark before administering the Oath of Advertising Practice at the induction ceremony held in Abuja.
He said although the awareness of APCON has increased with the establishment of more offices and liaison officers targeting all states of the federation, APCON staff cannot cover everywhere in Nigeria.
The induction which officially ushered more than 70 new members into the Advertising profession was held on Thursday at Bolton White Hotel, Abuja after a Modified Executive Professional Examinations (MEPE), to accommodate those who have been practicing media in their various establishments.
Inductees which were drawn mainly from the public sector had members from the Nigerian Export Free Zone Authority, Nigerian Communication Commission, Petroleum Equalization Fund, Stock Exchange Commission, Federal Radio Nigeria and Cross River Signage and Advertising Agency
