While assuring the foundation  of a healthy collaboration, Comrade Adamu described Kaduna Council as ‘mother’ of all Councils as it has representation of all media houses.
He made a passionate appeal to the foundation to intervene on the issue of New Nigerian Newspapers that had lingered for so long.
Retirees of the organization he lamented  are going  through untold sufferings as a result of backlog of unpaid pension money.
Aside being a legacy of late Sardauna,  New Nigerian newspapers is the only northern newspapers and therefore needs to be resuscitated.
