Nasarawa Information Commissioner Tasks Journalists On Objective Reportage

By Mohammed Baba Busu

Mr Dogo Shammah, the Nasarawa State Commissioner for Information and Culture, has urged journalists in the state to be objective in their reportage of activities of the State Government.

Shammah, who made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia on Monday described practicing journalists in the state as critical partners of the Gov. Abdullahi Sule administration.

He stressed that the journalists had been playing invaluable roles in ensuring even development of the state.

He appealed to the journalists to always portray the administration in good light to ensure its success.

The commissioner said journalists were critical partners that would help government in sustaining peace, unity and socio-economic progress of any society, and should, therefore, be “objective in there reportage”.

He then urged youths in the society to always exhibit good conduct and desist from acts capable of hampering their progress.

He said no nation could develop without ambitious youths, and therefore urged the youths to shun social vices and embrace formal education.

“If you want to be successful, then you should aspire to be something. You don’t look for those who have made it to come and begin to support you, you should also aspire to be somewhere, one day,” Shammah said.
