NUJ Delegates Conference Scheduled For Abia Can Hold, Says NEC

The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has agreed that the delegates conference scheduled to hold Abia state, can go on.

The decision was arrived at during its emergency meeting convened online on Sunday.

A statement by the National Secretary of the Union, Shuaibu Leman said the meeting, attended by 72 members, was convened “to douse tension occasioned by a purported court action and to further chart a way forward as it relates to the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference in Umuahia.

“After a brief presentation by the National President, Chris Isiguzo, and the Chairman, Electoral Committee, Garba Muhammad, a motion was moved by Salihu Alkali, Chairman Nasarawa State Council for the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference to hold as scheduled.

“The motion was seconded by Momoh Adeiza, Chairman Kogi State Council, that election should go on as scheduled since there is no served Court order stopping it; and that should any court process that will necessitate postponement of the election be served, the tenure of the CWC be extended to such a time when elections will be rescheduled.

“There was no counter to this.

“NEC resolved to proceed with the election from the 6th-7th October, 2021 in Umuahia, Abia State, and that the present CWC is mandated to continue in office if there is any court order that may necessitate a postponement pending when the election will be rescheduled,” the statement reads.
