The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Katsina has suspended two of its members for hosting a press conference with one Bishir Sada Tsanni at the NUJ Press Centre which it said contravened the union’s constitution.
The union announced the suspension at the weekend in Katsina in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman, Mr. Buhari Mamman Daura, and the Secretary, Tukur Hassan Dan-Ali.
The suspended members, according to the statement, are Abdullahi Izma Yamadi of the Katsina State Television Chapel and Danjuma Muhammad of the Correspondents’ Chapel.
According to the statement, the suspension is with immediate effect.
Consequently, the union has dissolved the Press Conference Committee which the suspended members happened to be the Chairman and Secretary respectively and constituted a nine-man committee to investigate the suspended members and report to the union for further action.
