The media must be sensitive to Nigeria’s current situation – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked Nigerians to be sensitive to Nigeria’s current situation in their reportage.

Buhari in a statement issued on Sunday May 2 by his spokesman Femi Adesina ahead of the World Press Freedom day on May 3, said the media should not encourage incendiary words and actions that could further hurt our unity in diversity.

The President also pledged greater cooperation with the media to discharge its duties, in line with the theme of this year’s World Press Freedom Day, ‘Information as a Public Good.’

He said;

“The media must be sensitive to what we are going through as a country, and anything that would exacerbate the situation, and further inflame passions and emotions, should be avoided.

“The media needs to ensure that while informing, educating, entertaining and setting agenda for public discourse, it does not encourage incendiary words and actions that could further hurt our unity in diversity.

“Licentious freedom, the President says, is different from freedom with responsibility, and charges the Nigerian media to embrace the latter, rather than the former.

“He charges those who manage information for government to do everything in the public interest, while also encouraging the media to use the Freedom of Information Act available to make its jobs easier.

“The President submits that it is very vital to have access to reliable information in an era of misinformation, disinformation and hate speech, all to cause discord in society.”
