NAWOJ urges Federal Government to strengthen security architecture

The Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) has urged the Federal Government to strengthen the nation’s security architecture, in order to address security challenges in different parts of the country.

This was part of the resolutions reached at the end of a meeting held by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of NAWOJ, comprising members of the Central Working Committee (CWC), state chairpersons and secretaries of NAWOJ, at Lafia, Nasarawa State’s capital, presided over by the National President of NAWOJ, Comrade Ladi Bala.

A statement signed by the National Secretary of the association, Helen Udofia, disclosed that in a communique presented after the meeting, the NAWOJ NEC called on all security agencies in the country to execute their constitutional responsibilities.

In the communique, the NEC noted the deplorable condition of federal roads across the country and appealed to the appropriate authorities to take urgent steps to fix federal roads to avoid increasing road accidents and its attendant consequences.

According to the communique, the NEC further called on the Federal Government to look into the rising cost of food items, cooking gas, building materials, etc, with a view to reducing the cost of living for citizens in the country.

The communique also reports that the NEC frowned at the rising cases of gender-based violence in the country and stressed the need to ensure the workability of family courts to ensure justice for victims.

The Communiqué Drafting Committee had Dorathy Nnaji, as the Chairman, with Rose Elishama as Secretary and Nene Dung as member.

The statement says the NAWOJ NEC Meeting was preceded by a National Security Summit on the theme: “National Interest Amidst Insecurity: The Role of the Media,” held at the same venue and organised by the National Secretariat of NAWOJ.
