NUJ correspondents chapel chairman in Zamfara resigns

Commander in chief, correspondent for the Zamfara Council of State Chapel of the Union of Nigerian Journalists (NUJ), Comrade Umar Mohammed Maradun of the Leadership News newspaper finally resigned after the internal crisis that shook the chapel.

The crisis began when members accused the president of lack of transparency, lack of accountability, corruption, among others, which led to his removal.

Our correspondent reports that during the crisis, the governor’s special adviser, Comrade Zailani Bappa, intervened to end the crisis, but the members insisted on the need to remove the President.

However, Maradun was charged and the Authority’s Salisu Maradun newspaper became acting president with Radio Nigeria’s comrade Sani Duseman as vice president.

But after the impeachment, Umar Maradun, after several consultations with interested parties, presented his resignation letter, which most members described the resignation as medicine after death.

It could be remembered that the president in difficulty was accused by 18 members of the 25 chapel members.

However, members said Maradun’s resignation letter would be discussed after the new executive members were sworn in on Tuesday June 16, 2020.
