Sokoto State chapter of Correspondent Chapel of Nigerian Union of Journalist (NUJ), has announced the total boycotting of all state government activities.

This is contained in a statement signed by the chairman and secretary of the chapel in the state, Habibu Harisu and Ankeli Emmanuel respectively after the emergency Congress of the union held on Saturday.

According to the statement, “Following harassment and molestation of members of the Correspondents’ Chapel at the Government House, Sokoto on Friday 12/02/2021 by Security Personnel, members have resolved to boycott all Government activities in the state.

“The chapel wishes to also state that it’s members are barred from using Press Releases issued from the government, any group, individuals, organisations and politicians who do not deem it fit to invite them to their functions.

“This unanimous decision was taken after an extraordinary congress held on Saturday, 13/2/2021.”

The statement further condemned in strong terms, the unwarranted attitude of Security Agents at the Government House for threatening lives of harmless Journalists who are out to do their primary duties.

The Chapel, therefore, calls on Heads of Security Agencies in the State to sensitize their personnel on Media/Security relationship.
