He said, “As a country, Nigeria has always championed the observance of rights of freedom of expression and the safety of journalists. in spite of that, we have always insisted that this right that we all enjoy, especially as Media practitioners comes with a huge responsibility.

“A responsibility that says we must be circumspect in the use of information at our disposal to avoid misinformation, fake news and hate speech which, if not well managed, could lead to serious disaffection and chaos in society.
