The Rivers State Chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists has appealed to the State Government not to demolish the building housing AIT/Raypower.
The union, made the appeal in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Stanley Job Stanley and Ike Wigodo, Secretary of the union.
It appealed to the state government to review its position on the land dispute, adding that the building has been a subject of dispute between the state government and Daar Communication Plc for sometimes now.
The statement reads,
“We appeal to the Rivers State Government to review the quit notice given to Daar Communications Plc, owners of AIT and Raypower Radio Station.
“The Press and the Rivers State Government have come a long way as partners in progress. We believe that proper negotiation and peaceful resolution of the land dispute will serve the Government and people of Rivers State better.
“Whatever the merit of the quit notice by the Rivers State Government to Daar Communications Plc, we would not want the world to see the press in fight with the Rivers State Government in view of our long standing mutual relationship.
“NUJ will not be happy to see a Media House in Rivers State being demolished over a land dispute that can be resolved peacefully and amicably.”
