The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna State Council, has task President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency overhaul it’s security apparatus for the better, following the incessant killings in the country by Fulani Herdsmen and other marauding forces.
The Union in a communiqué at the end of it’s monthly Congress meeting on April 25th, 2018, expressed deep concern over the spate of unwarranted killings across the Country, and called on the Federal Government to put a stop to it.
The congress noted the rampant killings in Benue State particularly, the incident at the Catholic Church in UkporMbalom Community were clearly aimed at stoking up religious conflict in the Country.
The Council, commended the efforts of the Kaduna State Government in the provision of infrastructure in the state, adding that it is a remarkable improvement in the Education Sector and Road Projects.
They however, enjoined the State government to ensure equitable distribution of such projects across the whole State so as to douse the feelings of marginalization in some quarters.
They frowned at the indiscriminate manner with which both government and the private media organizations are laying off its members without due processes and warned that the Union will wade into such matter to protect it’s members.
On quackery, the council condemned the activities of some people who masquerade themselves as veteran journalists on facebook saying they are not members of the NUJ.
The meeting expressed it’s heartfelt condolences to it’s former Chairman, Mr. Andrew Fadason over the demise of his father, Mr. Aboki Fadason and prayed God to grant him, his family and relations the fortitude to bear the loss.
