The National Executive Council of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists, NAWOJ, has expressed worry over the wanton destruction of lives and property by suspected herdsmen across the country and called on the federal government to find a lasting solution to the crisis which is now threatening national peace, security and co-existence of Nigerians.
This is contained in a communiqué issued at the end of a national executive council meeting of the Association held in Jos, Platueau State.
The communiqué applauded security agencies for dislodging insurgents in the North East Zone.
It decried the hardship Nigerians were going through as a result of unabated fuel scarcity and hike in prices of petroleum products by the dealers and appealed to the federal government and the relevant agencies to make the commodity available in the interest of national development.
The Association also condemned the increasing cases of act of brutalization of journalists in the course of discharging the lawful duties by unpatriotic members of society and some security agents and called for restraint.
NAWOJ commended the federal government for the steps taken to review the minimum wage of civil servants and charged the newly inaugurated committee on Minimum Wage to expedite action to reduce the sufferings of workers in the country.
The communiqué encouraged workers in the country to register in any political party of their choice, seek leadership positions and be involved in democratic process that would position them strategically in next year’s general elections.
It also lauded the leadership style and developmental strides of the National President of NAWOJ, Mrs. Ifeyinwa Omowale in lifting the Association to a greater height.
