I’ll do better – Re-elected NUJ President, Isiguzo vows
National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Comrade Chris Isiguzo, has described his re-election for a second term at the just concluded national triennial delegate conference, as a vote of confidence in the leadership of the union.
Isiguzo applauded members for not letting down the union at its critical moments, especially for taking the decision to attend the conference in spite of orchestrated attempts to truncate the conference.
He made the commendation in his acceptance speech, shortly after he was administered Oath of Office after the announcement of election results during the 7th triennial delegates conference of the union, held in Umuahia, the Abia state capital.
Isiguzo had polled a total number of 665 votes to defeat his opponent, Yusuf Idris who scored 15 votes as announced by Comrade Joe Ajaero, the Deputy National President Nigeria Labour Congress at the Michael Okpara Auditorium Umuahia, the venue of the election.
Recall that before the just concluded triennial delegate conference of the NUJ, an ex-parte order obtained by some union members in Ogun state council from Ibadan Division of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria suspending the 7th triennial delegates conference was vacated by the court on the 6th October 2021, giving way for the conference to go on as planned.
However, the NUJ President, Isiguzo called for the maximum support of members to enable him and his team to take the union to a greater pedestal.
The Abia-born journalist, however, dedicated his victory to the union members and promised that his second term in office will be better than the first term.
