Nigerian Journalist Suspended ‘Indefinitely’ For Requesting Salary On Social Media

Officials said the Facebook post was an “embarrassment” to the Imo State government.

The suspended journalist, Vivian Ottih, is a lawyer and a senior editor with the government-owned IBC Orient FM radio station.

She is the chairperson of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), in Imo State.

Mrs Ottih, on May 4, posted a message on Facebook, appealing to Governor Hope Uzodinma’s media aide, Modestus Nwamkpa, to make a case to the governor on behalf of the workers in the government-owned radio and television stations who were yet to get their February, March, and April salaries.

Mrs Ottih described Mr Uzodinma as a “humble” and “performing” governor, and said the governor may not have been aware of the travails of the workers.

She said in the post that she was personally hard-hit by the situation because she just had a baby weeks earlier.
