Journalists under the auspices of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) are in the State to elect new members of the Central Working Committee of the union.
The delegates from the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) are expected to elect the NUJ National officers of the union today.
The national officers will spend three years in office.
Findings revealed that Umuahia has been witnessing beehive of activities since Tuesday.
NUJ President, 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 Isiguzo had cleared all encumbrances for the union to go ahead with the delegates’ conference.
He explained that the opening ceremony of the conference is expected to commence at 9am at Dr. Michael Okpara Auditorium, Umuahia.
