Don’t spread hate message, Sultan urges Nigerian media



The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, has urged media practitioners to avoid the spread of hate messages capable of destabilising the peace of the nation.

Mr. Abubakar made the call at a joint press conference in Abuja as part of a three-day international program on religions for peace.

He said a lot of the damage caused by terrorists would be prevented if most media organisations acted responsibly towards reducing the gap between various groups and religions.

Mr. Abubakar, who had earlier called for greater cooperation of the citizens with government, said the media must also imbibe cooperative and responsive approach to reporting, as a way of contributing towards the struggle for peace.
