For failure to conduct Union elections after the expiration of its tenure, the Nigerian Union of Journalists, Kaduna State Chapel has dissolved the Nigerian Television Authority chapel leadership of the Union.
This was contained in a Press Release sent to The Oasis Reporters, November 1st, 2018.
The release reads:
“In its effort to ensure leaders and members strictly adhere to the Union constitution, the Executive committee, Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Kaduna State Council, has dissolved the NTA Chapel leadership with immediate effect.
The decision was necessitated following the expiration of the Chapel leadership tenure since August, 2018 and their failure to conduct election, which contradicts Article 6 section 1 subsection of the NUJ constitution.
Based on this development, the Council will hold a meeting with the members of the Chapel to discuss the way forward.
The Council leadership, however assures all chapels in the state of its commitment to ensure that the union’s constitution is strictly adhered to for the development of journalism in our state and the country in general.
