Niger Assembly seeks media support


Minna –  The Speaker of the Niger House of Assembly, Mr Ahmed Marafa, on Tuesday solicited for media support for the state government to deliver on its electoral pledges.
Marafa made the call while addressing newsmen at the state Assembly complex in Minna.
He noted that the developmental progress has being made in the state without adequate publicity.
According to him, the poor media coverage given to such improvement in the lives of the people makes them insignificant.
He said adequate coverage of state government activities was critical to the success of the administration.
“The three arms of government in the state are working very hard to improve the state and its economy since the inception of this administration.
“The media is central to the success of any government, so I want to enjoin you all to help play your part in the development of our state by constantly keeping the people informed of the policies and programmes of government.
“Inadequate coverage of our activities is making it seem like nothing is happening in the state.
“But things are actually happening to uplift the people and move the state forward,” he said.
Marafa also tasked journalists in the state on factual and objective reportage, saying that peddling falsehood could compromise public peace and order.
He said saboteurs bent on frustrating the efforts of the present administration in the state would not succeed.
“Those who are determined to bring down this government would not succeed because the people know that we are working and have impacted their lives positively since we came on board,” he said. (NAN)
