The Guild of Professional Bloggers of Nigeria has given September 1st 2016 as the deadline for all bloggers in Nigeria to stop the practise of plagiarism .


This is contained in a statement pushed out by the union after its general meeting held in Lagos. The meeting presided over by its Acting National President, Mr. Chris Kehinde Nwandu advocates that bloggers should be seen to live above board in their practices. 


To ensure full compliance with this directive, the union raised an 8 man ethics committee to among other things, monitor the ethical behaviour among its members and to recommend adequate sanctions where necessary.


All members are expected by this directive, to adhere to the conventional practise of acknowledging and crediting sources of their materials. The union also enjoined other mass medium across the globe to adequately credit all sources of news materials lifted from pages of its members as well.    

According to it, the association is now out to bring some level of credibility and sanity to the practise of blogging in Nigeria and to give its practitioners their rightful place in the scheme of things.                                                      

It has also mapped out refresher programmes and continuous training to adequately equip its members with effective tools to discharge its duties as managers of information in a digital age.
