Ganduje Urges Media to Promote National Integration, Unity among Nigerians
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.”
