NUJ suspends ex-president Odusile, 3 others

The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) yesterday suspended its immediate past National President, Abdulwaheed Odusile and three others for anti-union activities.

The decision was taken at the quarterly national executive council meeting of the union which was presided over by the National President of the union, Chief Chris Isiguzo with state council chairmen and secretaries as well as zonal and national executive members in attendance.

Others suspended along with Odusile are Petrus Obi, Chibota Edozie and Ngozi Agbo.

The decision of the union to suspend the affected members also followed the flouting of the union’s constitution by going to court over union matters without following due process.

Recall Odusile had recently gone to court challenging the union’s 2018 National Election where current president, Chris Isiguzo emerged as winner after defeating Odusile
