Gross Misconduct: Taraba NUJ Correspondents Chapel Sacks Executive Committee 


BY AMEH IDUJAGI, JALINGO – The Correspondents Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Taraba State chapter has sacked its Executive Committee under the Chairmanship of Wole Ayodele of Thisday Newspaper for what the members described as “persistently violating” the provisions of the constitution of the Union.

Mr Sani Sulaiman, who read the vote of no confidence on Saturday at the NUJ Press Centre, Jalingo on behalf of the 18 out 25 members that signed the vote of no confidence, said the leadership of the Chapel has refused to hold a single Congress meeting for the past two years.

Sulaiman, who is the correspondent of the Federal Radio Corporation Nigeria (FRCN), said that the inability of the Executive to hold congress translates to lack of transparency and accountability in the administration of the chapel.

The Congress then directed the sacked executive committee of the Chapel to hand over all union’s property in their possession to the acting Chairman, Malam Magaji Hunkuyi of the Daily Trust within 24 hours.

The Congress also directed the Acting officials to organize and conduct elections to elect a new executive committee for the Chapel within 30 days. 

Our correspondent recalled that Mr Ayodele was previously impeached as chairman of the Correspondent Chapel in Kogi state while serving as a correspondent in the state.
