Deji Adeyanju, popular Abuja-based activist, has urged the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, to boycott all federal government events.
Adeyanju made the appeal while condemning the imposition of fine worth millions of naira on AIT, Channels and Arise TV.
The National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, had fined the above listed media houses over their coverage of the End SARS protest.
NBC had tagged the media houses coverage as unprofessional.
Condemning the sanction, Adeyanju of the Concerned Nigerians urged the NUJ to avoid the federal government’s events for two weeks.
In a tweet, the activist wrote: ‘I appeal to the NUJ to boycott all Federal Government events and activities in the country for 2weeks in protest against the NBC fine of AIT, ARISE and CHANNELS.’
‘This should be the irreducible minimum. Don’t be vocal only against FFK and scarred of Buhari. #EndSARS.’
