Orji Uzor Kalu: NUJ Reacts As EFCC Moves To Seize Sun Newspaper

The Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) has advised the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to exercise restraint in its move to seize the Sun Newspaper.
National Secretary, Shuaibu Usman Leman, in a statement on Tuesday, expressed worry that the agency had given a notice to staff of the organisation to vacate the premises.

The EFCC said it will enforce a court judgement which ordered for the seizure of property belonging to Senator Orji Uzor Kalu who was convicted of fraud.

Leman, in his statement, said: “While we appreciate the efforts of EFCC at fighting corruption in the country but we hasten to caution that any attempt to throw Journalists out of work for whatever reason in such a hasty manner is not good for democracy.

“The media as pivots to good governance and democracy must be allowed to flourish unhindered. We, therefore, urge for restraint in this regard to allow for the appeal filed to be determined first before any decision is taken.

“We are afraid that moving hurriedly to seal off The Sun may be misconstrued as politically motivated. This action regrettably is being taken without any consideration to the essence of preserving vibrant and virile journalism at this time when the profession is facing increasing challenges.

“We need to preserve the jobs of the media workers in The Sun Newspapers by being circumspect and prudent in this respect”, the NUJ scribe added.
