The President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ Chris Isiguzo, has called for a constitutional role for the traditional institution in tackling insecurity in the country.
Isiguzo made the call during a courtesy call on the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, at his palace in Ibadan on a three-day working visit as part of his ongoing nationwide tour.
He said the ongoing tour would avail him opportunity to interact with members across the country.
The NUJ President added that with the rulers assigned such role, it would be difficult for an alien to perpetrate crises in their domain without being spotted and arrested. He also gave an assurance that the insecurity across the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria would be reduced to the barest minimum.
Adetunji, in his response, welcomed the President and his entourage to the state, thanking them for showing respect to the traditional institution. He urged members to support the NUJ President and the newly elected executives to succeed.
