Over one thousand journalists have converged on Umuahia, the Abia State Capital for the 7th Triennial Delegates Conference of the Nigeria Union of Journalists NUJ.
Umuahia is witnessing a beehive of activities as journalists across the country trooped into the town for the programme.
A new leadership is expected to emerge at the end of the delegates conference to pilot the affairs of the union following expiration of tenure of office of the incumbent.
NUJ Presudent, Mr Chris Isiguzo in a statement to welcome all delegates to Umuahia,, said the Ex – Parte Order obtained from the National Industrial Court of Nigeria by some members of the union in Ogun state restraining the union from holding the conference, had been vacated by the court in Ibadan.
This development, according to Mr Chris Isiguzo had cleared all encumbrances for the union to go ahead with the delegates conference.
