By Chris Ugwuja

Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has waded into and resolved the issues that led to the rejection of the COVID-19 palliative his administration delivered to Journalists last Saturday.

This was made known by the chairman of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, Enugu State Council, Comrade Rex Arum, while addressing newsmen at the NUJ, press centre, Rangers Avenue, Enugu.

He said that the governor increased the quantity of the items he earlier gave to the council, which included bags of 25kg rice, cartons of spaghetti, cartons of noodles, cartons of tomato paste, gallons of groundnut oil, tubers of yam, and some bags of semovita and made it clear that he was not part of the problem of the NUJ, that he recognizes the Rex Arum led executive.

Recall that on Saturday 16Th May, the members of the NUJ rejected the palliative which included tubers of yam, bags of rice, cartons of noodles, cartons of tomato paste and gallons of groundnut oil over a controversy of who will take delivery of the items, whether it’s the council chairman or another journalist. Another issue was the sharing formular of the items.
