Also, we charge you to work towards ostracizing fake journalists from your profession and fake news peddler. The authenticity of Information has become a longstanding issue affecting our society, both for printed and digital media.
On social networks, the reach and effects of information spread occur at such a fast pace and so amplified that distorted, inaccurate or false information acquires a tremendous potential to cause real world impacts, within minutes, for millions of users.
We look forward to a robust relationship with your new executive committee. We look forward to a partnership of good projection of the Project Nigeria.
