Mr Dosara seized the opportunity to advise journalists to be up and doing in their reportage, saying “we should all put hands together to build Nigeria for all of us to live in, and make it better for the coming generations.”

He emphasized the need for journalists and the young ones to be honest, and sincere, adding that they should bear it in mind that journalists are expected to go where the common man cannot go and to always fight for the right of the common man.

He also urged them to be good ambassadors in making sure that they achieve positive results and to shun fake news so that they don’t incite Nigerians against one another.

“Furthermore, journalists should endeavour to bring Nigerians together so that we can all live in harmony, peace, and have peaceful coexistence among ourselves. I believe that with this, Nigeria would be united and the focus would be the development of the country,” he concluded.
