An Ibadan Division of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria has vacated an interim order sought to truncate the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), holding in Umuahia, the Capital of Abia State.

Consequently, the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference holding between Wednesday 6th and Friday 8th, 2021 in Umuahia is billed to commence as scheduled by the Garba Muhammed-led Screening and Credentials Committee of the NUJ.

Recall that the duo of Comrades Soji Amosu and Ayokunle Ewuoso, Chairman and Secretary of Ogun State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), respectively, have sought an Ex-parte injunction from the Ibadan Division of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria to stop the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference of NUJ for not being recognised as Delegates by the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

Reacting on the vacation of Ex-parte order, Comrade Chris Isiguzo, National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), stated that all legal encumbrances aimed at stopping the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference of NUJ had been cleared and the Conference would commence as scheduled.

“To the Glory of God, the Ex-parte Order obtained by some union members in Ogun State Council from the Ibadan Division of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria suspending the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference has been vacated by the court in Ibadan today.

“With this, all encumbrances have been cleared. I therefore use this opportunity to welcome our teeming delegates from across the country to Umuahia, Abia State. In all, the Union is the winner as collective interest surpasses individual’s interest”, he said.
