Rivers crisis: NUJ warns of threat to democracy

THE Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Zone F, South South, has expressed concern over the protracted political crisis in Rivers State and pleaded with stakeholders, particularly the Presidency, to find  solution to the crisis in order to save democracy in the country.

The union  also commended the developmental strides of Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State , asking other governors in the zone to emulate him  to achieve accelerated development in the Niger Delta. This was contained in their communiqué signed by the Vice President of the Zone, Seiyefa Uzaka, and Secretary, Comrade Eddy Ogwude, at the end of  a two-day zonal meeting of the NUJ in Benin-City.
While commending the comments made recently by the Presidency on the issue, the communiqué warned that the crisis, if not settled urgently, might lead to a break down of law and order in the South-south.
