The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, has dissolved the executive council of the Zamfara State council of the Union.

It appointed a five-man caretaker committee to manage the affairs of the council for three months.

This followed a resolution reached between the SEC members of the State council, Vice President zone A, Comrade Mohammed Tukur Umar and the Secretary of the union in charge of the North West zone, Comrade Comrade Abdulrazak Bello Kaura.

The tenure of the State Council executives had already expired early this year.

The Zamfara State government had suspended the State Council election which was to be held May 12, indefinitely, due to fear of insecurity.

Those nominated during the meeting as members of the caretaker committee are Maharaji Altine, a Punch correspondent from the Correspondents’ chapel as Chairman, Ahamad Sani Tsafe from Zamfara Radio chapel as Secretary, Lawal Tsalha from information chapel as member, Jamilu Ibrahim from NTA Chapel member and Rabi Yusuf from Pride FM chapel as Treasurer.
