Guild Of Editors Speak On Rising Challenges.

Nigerian Guild of Editors has urged the government at all levels to step up efforts in addressing growing security challenges across the country.

A communique issued and signed by the NGE President, Mr Eze Anaba, and the General Secretary, Dr. Iyobosa Uwugiaren, after the forum’s Standing Committee Meeting held in Enugu described the recent release of students of LEA Primary School and Government Secondary School in Kuriga, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, as a good development.

The guild also called on the Federal Government to speak out on the Editor of FirstNews Newspaper, SegunOlatunji, who was abducted from his Lagos home by some men in military uniform, and described the recent ambush and killing of 17 military personnel in the Okuama community, in Delta State, and the aftermath of the alleged military’s revenge as disheartening.

It called on the Federal Government to dig deep into the killing of soldiers in Okuama, and unravel the ‘’real circumstances’’ in which the incident and its aftermath occurred, with a view to bringing those indicted to book and preventing a recurrence, stressing that, the rising cost of living in the country, which saw Nigeria’s headline inflation rate increase from 29.90 per cent in January to 31.70 per cent in February, and attributed the current harsh economic space to the worsening security situation, as well as removal of subsidy on petrol, and the devaluation of the Naira, following the unifying of exchange rates.
