By Emma Amaize
WARRI—THE Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Delta State Council at a stakeholders’ meeting, weekend, called on the Delta State government to urgently intervene and stop the encroachment on the plot of land allocated to the union by some unauthorized persons.

It also announced the resolution of the leadership crisis in the union, saying that henceforth, journalists in the state would duly recognize and cooperate with the Osita Biose-led leadership.

In a communiqué signed by the national vice president, Comrade Pius Ede and two others, the union also implored the state government to assist it in building a befitting office on the land.

The journalists resolved that peace was imperative in order to move the state council forward and “in the interest of peace, positions in the state council should reflect collective representation of the chapels”.

Accordingly, positions of the vice chairman, secretary, assistant secretary and internal auditor were declared vacant to be filled via a bye-election to hold within the next 30 days.

The Stakeholders Meeting commended the Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, the State Government and people of Delta State for their patience and continued interest shown in the peaceful resolution of the impasse that plagued the union in the state.

The zonal leadership commiserated with the Director of Information, Sir Austin Mowah over the demise of his beloved wife, Lady Patricia Mowah and also applauded stakeholders, leaders, veterans and the leadership of the union in the country for their roles in ensuring professionalism.
