President, Buhari Urges Journalists to Tone Down Insecurity Reports About Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the media to address the tone, content, and standards of reporting security and safety measures.

 

In a statement signed by his media aide, Garba Shehu, on Monday, October 18, Buhari said the term “rising insecurity” should be replaced with the “reality of declining insecurity.”

 

“The President uses the occasion to give a snapshot of the increased activities the Armed Forces, Police Force, and intelligence agencies have embarked upon to effectively respond to the security challenges in the nation.

 

He says the government fully expects and intends for these trends to continue, and calls on the media to address the tone, content, and standards of reporting into security and safety measures. Time has come to revise the prefixes “rising insecurity” with “declining insecurity.”

 

The President adds that increased cooperation and collaboration from the citizenry, coupled with reinvigorated, dynamic, and energised police, security and military leadership is helping the administration score more victories against terror, criminality, and economic sabotage. The reality of declining insecurity should replace the inaccurate narrative of rising insecurity in the country.

While there is work to do, the men and women in uniform who are helping the nation to achieve this goal, desire our collective appreciation and encouragement to do even more. The whole country and its mass communications systems have a duty in this regard,” the statement reads.
