Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Musa Ab­dul­lahi Kr­ishi

The Speaker of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Yakubu Dog­ara, has called on jour­nal­ists to ex­pose the mis­takes of pub­lic of­fice hold­ers with a view to cor­rect­ing them.

Speak­ing dur­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the new lead­er­ship of the House Press Corps in Abuja, yes­ter­day, Dog­ara said it was only when jour­nal­ists en­gage in con­struc­tive crit­i­cisms of the ac­tiv­i­ties of the House that the law­mak­ers could sit up.

Dog­ara also tasked the media to al­ways dish out fac­tual in­for­ma­tion to Nige­ri­ans to help them make in­formed de­ci­sions.

"We want your sup­port and that doesn't mean that you should be singing praises on us. We want you to ex­pose our mis­takes as well. We be­lieve it is through that that we can cor­rect our mis­takes. The cor­rec­tion we're look­ing for in­clude con­struc­tive crit­i­cisms.
