ITREALMS:
Crisis rocking the Lagos State council of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) may have escalated to reach a group of elders who are now calling for truce, reports 
ITREALMS.

This is coming as planned congress on Saturday, July 4, 2020 may not equally hold to give the committee time to harness all peaceful interventions.

A press statement made available to ITREALMS endorsed by the duo of former Council Chairman, Mr. Lanre Arogundade, and former President, National Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), Mrs. Toro Oladapo on behalf of Elders' Committee, their attention have been drawn to the crisis brewing in the council in Lagos State.

"We urge the different sides to the dispute to exercise restraint and refrain from any act of omission or commission that may bring the State Council and indeed the Union into disrepute.

"Pursuant to the need to ensure a peaceful atmosphere under which the matters at stake can be addressed and amicably resolved, we have invited the Chairman, the Vice Chairman, the Secretary and all other members of the State Executive to a crucial meeting on Saturday, July 4 at 12pm in the temporary Secretariat of the union at LTV/Radio Lagos premises.

"We have also appealed to them that the Congress planned for this Saturday, July 4, 2020, following an earlier rescheduling, be further postponed to July 11 to give room for the intervention of members of the committee," they submitted.

They equally requested for peace in the press statement entitled: 
Crisis in Lagos NUJ: A call for caution by Elders' Committee.

ITREALMS recalls that in the last dispensation of Lagos NUJ, its activities were fleeced with fraudulent activities include a housing scam led by Mrs. Ifenyinwa Omowole and Mr. Deji Elumoye under the NUJ-NAWOJ PenJewel Housing Estate with millions of Naira unaccounted for till date.
