The Nasarawa State Government have tasked journalists to continue patriotic while discharging their duties with the view of ensuring peace, unity and development of the country.

Governor Abdullahi Sule made the call on Sunday in Lafia at a thanksgiving Church service held at Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ (ERCC) Gloryland to mark the 2021 press week by the Nasarawa State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

The governor who was represented by his deputy, Dr Emmanuel Akabe, said the importance of journalists to the development of any society cannot be over-emphasise hence the need for them to continue to be patriotic.

The governor said journalists can make or destroy the society, therefore, they cannot afford to be unpatriotic, because doing so would be at the detriment of the society.

He also on behalf of the people and government of the state commended journalists for partnering the government toward ensuring peaceful coexistence.

“Journalists in the state are doing very well by educating the public and keeping the government in check.

“So far, they usually critised the government where necessary and offer suggestions on how what was critised be carry-out,” the governor added.

On his part, Rev. Peter Aya in charge of the Church said every profession including journalism was created by God.

He said journalists are critical stakeholders in any society and without them the society will be in confusion.

The man of God however, said that journalists are vulnerable by the nature of their assignment and called on the government and the public to respect all media workers.
