Herdsmen killing: NAWOJ tasks FG


The National Executive Council (NEC), of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), has advised the federal government to immediately tackle the rising cases of herdsmen attacks across the country.

The advice came as the organisation passed a vote of confidence on the association’s President, Ifeyinwa Omowole for giants strides achieved in steering the affairs of the association.

In a nine-point communiqué issued at the end of its meeting in Jos, Plateau state, the council hailed the Federal Government and security agencies for dislodging insurgents and degrading their activities in the northeast region.

It, however, expressed worry over the malicious destruction of lives and property by suspected herdsmen across the country and tasked the federal government to find a lasting solution to the crisis with a view to ending the bloodshed that is threatening national peace, security and corporate co-existence of Nigerians.

It decried the untold hardship Nigerians are forced to put up with as a result of the unabated fuel scarcity and hike in prices of petroleum products and appealed to the federal government and relevant agencies to make the commodity available across the country in the interest of national development.

NEC also condemns the increasing cases of brutalization of journalists by the terrorist in the country.

Meanwhile, NAWOJ commends the Federal Government for the steps taken to review upwards the minimum wage of civil servants and charges the newly inaugurated committee on minimum wage to expedite action, so as to reduce the suffering of workers in the country.
