Former National President of the Nigerian Union of Journalist (NUJ), Abdulwaheed Odusile has asked the National Industrial Court in Abuja to restrain Chris Isiguzo from parading himself as the National President of the association.

Odusile, in a suit filed on his behalf by his counsel, Obina Okeke, held that Isiguzo, the only defendant in the matter is not qualified to contest any elective position in the NUJ because he (Isiguzo) is not a valid member of the association.

The plaintiff, in the suit, prayed the court for an order mandating the defendant to vacate the official office of the National President of NUJ at its headquarters, in Mabuchi, Abuja and hand over same to him.

Odusile also prayed the court for an order for him to be sworn in as the National President of the NUJ with immediate effect.
