Mobil institutes prize for University of Nigeria Mass Comm students

Three gifted writers among students of the Department of Mass Communication, University of Nigeria, would henceforth earn a residency internship in Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited, the oil company has said.

The company would annually select the lucky students from those who have shown the spirit of entrepreneurship by constantly writing articles, opinions and blogs concerning the development and economy of Nigeria.
For a particular student to qualify for selection, a national daily, blog or internet site must consistently publish or post his or her works for the year in review, with effect from 2013, the MPNU stated.
According to the oil firm, the residency internship would not encroach on the school’s academic calendar, and stated that it is aside the mandatory industrial attachment programme for Mass Communication students.
Mobil’s General Manager, Public and Government Affairs, Mr. Paul Arinze, made this disclosure at the weekend during the 2013 Jackson Annual Lecture, usually hosted by UNN’s Department of Mass Communication.
“We will pick up the bills and place you in a very nice place to work in Mobil where you would further improve yourself and imbibe an entrepreneur spirit that would in future enable you to be self-employed,” Arinze told the students at the Jackson lecture.
Head of Department, Mass Communication, UNN, Dr. Nnanyelugo Okoro, commended the move and advised Mobil to help the department acquire modern communication equipment and facilities to sustain its full accreditation by 2015.
