Maku Tasked Journalists On Investigative Journalism
Labaran Maku has called on Journalists in Nasarawa state to imbibe the spirit of investigative Journalism, saying investigative reporting is the only solution that relieves the people from the clutches of misrule.
The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) challenged the press to exhibit the courage and habit of rural Journalism instead of focusing on government alone.
“Investigative reporting is the only tool to keep those in the helms of affairs on their toes; this will help people at the grassroots whom have been excised from day to day livelihood”.
“Investigative journalism will help the citizenry to know what came in and what goes out of the state, he expressed displeasure with the way reporters gave prominence to government activities”.
Maku also tasked the press to create awareness in the cause of their reportage, saying scores of communities are disconnected from government presence.
He urged Journalists to reject any provocative statement that may incite and disrupt public peace.
