Media most hit by Coronavirus in Nigeria - NUJ President, Isiguzo

Media most hit by Coronavirus in Nigeria - NUJ President, Isiguzo (Updated: 11 months ago)


The National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Mr. Chris Isiguzo, has said that the media is the most hit sector by the outbreak of Coronavirus in the country.

Isiguzo said this while addressing members of the Oyo State council of the union in Ibadan during his visit on Saturday.

He was accompanied to Ibadan by some members of the union among whom were NUJ Zone D Chief, Wilson Bako; Amos Dunia, Ladi Emmanuel, among others.

Our Source recalls that Coronavirus was first recorded in Nigeria in 2020.

Isiguzo added that the effect of Coronavirus made some media houses lay off some of their staff.

“When the Coronavirus came, the media is the most hit in the country.

“Most of the newspapers have to lay off their workers because they do not get adverts and other patronages.

“I can tell you that a newspaper does not have staff again, I will not tell you the name, but they have made their staff as freelancers.

“But, as a remedy, we have set up a committee in conjunction with MPAN and NUJ to rescue media houses from sacking workers. The committee is headed by the publisher of Business day newspaper.

“We believed that if such thing happened, it is not the professionals that should be affected”.

Isiguzo, while speaking on the forthcoming 7th triennial delegates conference of the union, noted that the union would make the conference free and fair.

“Efforts have been made to ensure a hitch-free conference in Abia state next month,” he said.

The chairman of the state council of NUJ, Comrade Ademola Babalola, welcomed the delegation on behalf of the Oyo State Council of NUJ.
