Buhari begs Journalists not to Report Insecurity as Rising


President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday urged the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), as well as media organizations not to use the term ‘rising insecurity’ to address the tone, content, and standards of reporting into security and safety measures.

President Buhari in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu and titled ‘President Buhari Felicitates With Muslims On Eid-el-Maulud, Reassures That Significant Gains Are Being Made In Combating Insecurity’, said the term “rising insecurity” should be replaced with the “reality of declining insecurity.”

The statement partly read, “The President urges Muslims to strive for forgiveness and closeness to the noble life and teachings of the Prophet (SAW) whose birthday is being marked on this blessed day. On this auspicious occasion, I wish you all the blessings of today.
