The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Kaduna State Council has frowned at the indiscriminate manner in which Government and the private media organizations are laying off its members without due processes.

In communique shortly after its congress on April 25 2018 which was presided over by the Chairman, Comrade Adamu Yusuf, the Council warned that the Union will wade into such matter to protect its members.

It also strongly condemned the activities of some people who masquerade themselves as veteran journalists on facebook, informing the public that those people are not members of Nigeria Union of Journalist.

The Council expressed deep concern over the spade of unwarranted killings across the Country and called on the Federal Government to as a matter of urgency put a stop to it, particularly, the incident at the Catholic Church in Ukpor-Mbalom Community and warned that such were clearly aimed at stoking up religious conflict in the Country.

It expressed concern over the security situation in the Country and urged the Federal Government to overhaul the Security apparatus in the country.

On the State of Kaduna State, the Council enjoined the State government to ensure equitable distribution of such Projects across the whole State to douse the feelings of Marginalization in some quarters.

It however, commended the efforts of the Kaduna State Government in the provision of infrastructure in the state and noted the remarkable improvement in the Education Sector and Road Projects.

The Congress expressed its heartfelt condolences to its former Chairman, Mr. Andrew Fadason over the demise of his father, Mr. Aboki Fadason and prayed God to grant him, family and relations the fortitude to bear the loss.
