The Zamfara state Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), has banned non-members of the union from using its official sticker under any guise.
This is contained in a communiqué signed by the state chairman and secretary, Comrade Abdulrazak Bello Kaura and Comrade Abubakar Ahmed and issued to newsmen at the end of the state executive council meeting held at the NUJ state Secretariat Gusau Thursday.
The union urged security agencies to support the union in ensuring that only journalists with their official organisation’s NUJ national identity card should be allowed usage of the sticker.
The Union in a Communique joins the state government, security agencies and people of the state in prayers to see the end of armed banditry facing Zamfara state in particular and the nation in general
“Members called upon to be more dedicated to their work and closely guided by the ethics of the profession,” the Communique said.
