The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ondo State Council, wishes to welcome the entire members and media professionals in the Sunshine State to new year 2020, thanking God for His mercy and grace to enable us witness another year.
In a NEW YEAR MESSAGE jointly signed by the State Chairman, ADETONA ADEROBOYE and the State Secretary, LEKE ADEGBITE, Ondo NUJ specifically appreciates God for His protection over all our members especially before, during and after 2019 general election.
The Union’s leadership expresses delight that the current Executives of Ondo NUJ had so far kept in 2019 our promises of protecting interest of all journalists in the state and taking the pen profession to a higher height.
We shall keep entrenching unity, progress and general development in our State Council of NUJ in year 2020 to meet yielding of all members across our 11 chapels.
On the #30,000 minimum wage implementation, Ondo NUJ commends the timely composition of the state Negotiating Council, urging Ondo state workers to keep faith with Labour leaders to negotiate sustainable minimum wage for them.
As Ondo state prepares for 2020 governorship election, we charge political class, INEC and Security agencies to see media professionals as partners in growing the nation’s Democracy and should always carry the media along in the electoral processes.
The Union also enjoins political gladiators to maintain decorum ahead of the 2020 gubernatorial election in the state.
We pray Almighty God to continue to guide and guard Journalists as well as their family members to witness many more years in good health and abundant blessings.
HAPPY NEW YEAR ONCE MORE DEAR COLLEAGUES.
