FRCN Denies Harassing NUJ President
Chairman, Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, FRCN Ibadan Chapel, Alhaji Nafiu Busari has urged the public to disregard the information making the rounds that his members assaulted the union’s president, Chief Chris Isiguzo.
The chairman described the report as unprofessional and barbaric, imploring the group that wrote the story to take time to upgrade their journalism skills to avoid dishing out false information to the public.
Alhaji Busari said the National president, Mr. Chris Isiguzo and his entourage had informed the FRCN management of intentions of paying a courtesy call on Tuesday, 25th February.
“On arrival, they came with Demola Babalola who has been facing legal charges on his eligibility to participate in the Oyo NUJ election”
“My members held a congress earlier in the day and resolved that Babalola and his executives were not expected in the station”.
Alhaji Busari explained that the NUJ president with his entourage was welcomed by the FRCN management while others were politely informed that they were not welcomed.
The Zonal Director, Alhaji Muhammed Bello gave a warm welcome to NUJ President and the meeting was fulfilling as Mr. Isiguzo described Alhaji Bello as a good union man.
If there was any rancor, it would be reflected in the pictures, as the NUJ delegation was comfortable as they even left with souvenirs of FRCN.
“My members are decent and professional, I understand where the story is coming from and I understand their plight.”
“We have a matter in court and we are determined to see that justice prevails. No matter how long.”
Alhaji Busari urged the public to disregard the information, as the reality of things will soon be revealed to the public.
