On the occasion of today’s Workers Day celebration worldwide, Journalists For Christ congratulates journalists and other media workers for the work they are doing in their various organizations, institutions and agencies.
We acknowledge the challenges journalists have to cope with due to economic and other factors that have affected conditions of service and led to the loss of jobs.
We call on media owners in Nigeria to improve the working conditions of their staff and provide necessary facilities to ease the job they have to do.
Workers retained should be adequately renumerated, while those retrenched should be paid their entitlements promptly.
The situation where the staff of media organizations are not paid for months and are expected to still perform optimally is not realistic and should not continue.
We implore media owners and managements to explore and adopt new business models and use new technologies to enhance their production for sustainability.
We pray that God will continue to grant both workers and owners the wisdom needed to sustain their operations.
