The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has urged its members to obey all traffic rules and help to educate members of the public to adhere strictly to the rules in Enugu State.
This is contained in a communiqué issued at the end of NUJ Enugu State Council Monthly Congress held on Thursday in Enugu.
The communique also advised the state Ministry of Transport to operate within the established rules guiding the ministry.
“NUJ Enugu State Council, led by Comrade Sam Udekwe, after deliberating on the welfare of members and ways to improve its function as the fourth estate of the realm, came up with the following resolutions:
“The Congress stresses the need to maintain cordial relationship between journalists in the state and the Enugu State Police Command by paying a courtesy visit to the new state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr Kanayo Uzuegbu.
“NUJ urges the state government to be up an doing on the issue of security, especially at Enugu-Ezike area of Igboeze North LGA, as well as other parts of the state.
“This is especially where kidnapping, killings and other forms of crimes seem to have overwhelmed the people,” it said.
The statement also reiterated the need for the state government to include journalists working in the state in its palliative distribution programme to cushion the effect of fuel subsidy removal.
The communique was signed by Comrade Ifeoma Amuta, Secretary of NUJ Enugu State Council.
