The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, has urged the Federal Government to intensify efforts at revamping the nation’s economy, use dialogue and not force to resolve the crisis in the region, while calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to revisit all inconclusive elections and not deny some people equal representation in the National Assembly.

These were some of the resolutions reached at the meeting of the leadership of Zone ‘F’ of NUJ, comprising Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Rivers Edo and Bayelsa states, in Cross River State.

In a communiqué released after the meeting by Vice President, Zone F, Edward Ogude, and Zonal Secretary, Opaka Dokubo, NUJ called on the South-South governors to revive the BRACED Commission and cautioned journalists on the ethics of the profession and to avoid reportage capable of inciting the public.

On Edo State governorship election, the union leaders said: “Politicians must play the game by the book and desist from over-heating the polity.”

A three-man committee, Elder Patrick Albert, was also inaugurated at the meeting to plan for the investiture of two eminent sons of the region, who they said have supported the union’s activities, to be held in Port Harcourt in November.
