The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, at its Special Delegates Conference in Kano on Thursday kicked out workers of the National Orientation Agency, NOA, from its membership roll.
The NUJ took the decision during the constitution review at the special delegate session presided over by the union’s National President, Chris Isiguzo.
The delegates agreed that NOA employees would not be accorded the same rights as NUJ members anymore.
