ASUU calls for a better welfare package for journalists

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday advocated for better and improved welfare packages for journalists in Nigeria.

The call was made by the Chairperson of ASUU University of Jos branch, Dr. Lazarus Maigoro, at the inaugural lecture organised by the Correspondents’ chapel of the Plateau Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Jos.

According to Maigoro, a good welfare package for media practitioners would breed professionalism and reportage that would lead to the growth and development of the society.

Maigoro, who decried poor remuneration for journalists in the country, called for urgent review of their welfare packages.

According to him, “A better welfare package for journalists in Nigeria will not only promote a better society, but will lead to objective reportage and professionalism.

“Just like teachers, the welfare package for media practitioners should urgently be reviewed upward.

“That’s why, we will begin to have a media that will stand for the truth and reports that will lead to a better Nigeria,” he maintained.

The ASUU chairperson called on both government-owned and private media outfits to ensure an upward review of salaries of their workers.
