Report less about Insecurity in Nigeria, say things are getting better- Buhari tells News Agencies

President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerian news outlets to die down on their reportage of insecurity in the country.

The President made the call during his speech on the occasion to mark this year’s Maulud-Un-Nabiyy, a day set aside for Muslims the world over to mark the birthday of Prophet Muhammad.

The President said it was time to preach peace and positivity, instead of pessimism, noting that it was time to replace “rising insecurity” with “declining insecurity.”

“I am delighted to send greetings of peace, unity and goodwill to the Muslim Ummah, fellow citizens and Muslims all over the world as they observe and celebrate Eid-ul- Maulud.”

The President urges Muslims to strive for “forgiveness and closeness to the noble life and teachings of the Prophet (SAW) whose birthday is being marked on this blessed day. On this auspicious occasion, I wish you all the blessings of today.”

He further promised that his government is doing everything within its power to make the country more secure.
“While there is work to do, the men and women in uniform who are helping the nation to achieve this goal, desire our collective appreciation and encouragement to do even more. The whole country and its mass communications systems have a duty in this regard,” the President adds.
