The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Kaduna State Council has said that its attention has described a social media post with the caption, “El Rufa’i threatens to seize the NUJ Kaduna Secretariat Building for their support for NLC protest” as baseless and unfounded.
This was expressed in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman, Adamu Yusuf and Secretary, John Femi Adi, made available to our correspondent on Sunday May 23, 2021.
“Kaduna Council of the NUJ wishes to state that the post, which went viral on different social media platforms is baseless and unfounded.
“The post is mischievous and only intended to disparage the reputation of the governor and to create disharmony between Kaduna State Government and the union,” it added.
NUJ said that at no point in time did the Clcouncil pay a courtesy call to the governor to even warrant such a position from Malam Nasir el-Rufa’i.
“Kaduna Council of the NUJ views the post as the handiwork of faceless mischief makers who are bent on creating tension where none exists,” it clarified.
The council therefore, urged its members to remain calm and to continue to remain professional in their day-to-day operations, as it has taken steps to unearth the source of the malicious post.
