Security Is Everybody’s Business, Protect Yourself — Nigerian Army Tell Nigerians

 

The Commander, Sector 2 Operation Lafiya Dole, Brig.-Gen. Adamu Nura, has appealed to journalists to prioritise Nigeria’s national interest in their reporting.

Nura made the appeal, on Friday, while hosting members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), who paid him a courtesy visit in Damaturu, adding that security is everybody’s business.

“National interest is more important than any other interests, including public interest; because when you protect national interest, public interest will automatically be covered”, he said.

He, therefore, enjoined journalists to always cooperate with security agencies, to protect the national interest in their reporting and avoid giving any form of publicity to terrorists.

“Security is everybody’s business, without security nothing can be achieved.” he said.

He added that the sector was ready to build the capacity of journalists within its jurisdiction, in order to have a harmonious relationship and effective coverage.

Nura added that his doors were open for journalist to report to him any issue that would assist the command in its effort to end insurgency.

The NUJ Chairman, Yobe state council, Mr Rajab Muhammed, commended the Nigeria Army for its relentless efforts at restoring peace in the state.

He also emphasized the need for the army and journalists to strengthen the synergy between them for effective and smooth operation.
