He also advised journalists, especially young students, to adhere to the ethics of the profession and avoid being used to propagate ills in society.
“The profession has its positive and negative parts, there are those who use journalism for all the despicable things.
“They pull down others; they do untrue stories, they blackmail and all others. But if you are determined to become an ethical journalist, certainly not even the sky is your limit; you will go as far as you can in the profession,” the presidential aide noted.
