- Ibrahim Shuaibu in Kano

Kano State Governor, Mr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, yesterday urged the Nigerian media to continue to promote national integratio­n and unity among Nigerians.

Ganduje made the appeal at the Kano State Government House shortly after presenting keys of vehicles, which the state government donated to the Nigeria Union of Journalist­s (NUJ), state Council and the Correspond­ents’ Chapel.

The governor also donated another vehicle to the associatio­n of blind people.

According to him, “Now that we are at crossroads in Nigeria, unity is so important, and the journalist­s are the ones to promote it.

“Our diversity should be regarded as an opportunit­y to make us more united and stronger.” The governor said journalist­s needed to be supported to promote the much needed unity and national integratio­n.

Ganduje further assured them that the government would continue to support journalist­s to carry out their constituti­onal responsibi­lity.

He extoled journalist­s in the state as intelligen­t, describing them as committed profession­als to the developmen­t of the country.

The governor stated that he observed the level of concern and commitment displayed by the journalist­s in the last parley he had with them a few weeks ago “where they displayed their commitment to issues of importance to the state.”
