The National President of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Mr Chris Isiguzo, has called on the Federal Government to overhaul the nation’s security architecture.
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that lives and property were protected and secured in the country.
Isiguzo made the call at the Grand Finale of the 2019 Press Week of the NUJ Kogi Council on Thursday in Lokoja.
NAN quoted him as saying the country was not in good shape in view of the prevailing security situation.
He said there was hardly any part of the country without one form of security challenge or the other from Northeast to Southwest and Sout-South.
Isiguzo held that “the fundamental mandate of any government remains the protection and security of lives and property of its citizenry”.
He appealed to government at all levels to critically address security situation across the country.
Isiguzo urged journalists to see hazards of the profession as the price they had to pay to sustain democracy in the country saying, “it’s something we owe society.”
