    NOA urges media to popularise FG’s policy on peace, security

    Dr Garba Abari, the Director-General, National Orientation Agency (NOA) has reiterated the need for the media to popularise Federal Governments policies and programmes aimed at promoting peace and security.

    Abari spoke at the round media round table entitled: “The Role of the Media in Reporting Peace Building Processes and the Counter Terrorism Narratives in Nigeria’’ on Thursday in Abuja.

    He said that it was the responsibility of the media to put the issues of national interests in proper perspective in order to elicit citizen’s cooperation with the government.

    He said given the successes achieved so far, the media must be commended for its patriotic contributions to the restoration and sustenance of national peace and security.

    Abari, who expressed the belief that there “is still room for the media to improve and enhance its capacity,’’ also called for objective, fair and balanced reportage of security issues.

    Also, Mr Bayo Onanuga, Managing Director, Nigeria News Agency in his remark said the media had a lot of roles to play in sustaining peace in the country.

    Onanuga reiterated that the fight for peace and harmony required the collective effort of everyone.

    He said that the use of the media was mostly needed at the grassroots and called for the development of community radio stations and newspapers, among others to effectively reach the expected audience.

    Onanuga, therefore, advised NOA to endeavour to take the forum to the rural communities.

    Similarly, Mansur Liman, Director General of Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) urged the media to inform, educate the citizen on government’s efforts at tackling terrorism.

    He stressed the need for the media to counter some disturbing narratives about the country that would cause a paradigm shift on the perspective of the people.

    Also, Dr Osita Okechukwu, the Director General, Voice of Nigeria (VON), said that reporting peace and conflict required some sense of responsibility.

    He urged reporters and editors not to glorify terrorism in their reports rather reports should be based on the way out of the challenges.

    Okechukwu also solicited for more funds for government-owned media houses.
