Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has provoked the broadcast media to take the lead in telling the Nigerian story.
He said this will help to control the twisting of information by a section of the foreign media.
Lai Mohammed said this in Oko, Oyo State while commissioning the 89.3 FM Station on Saturday.
“I challenge broadcast media in Nigeria to take the lead in telling the Nigerian story…” he said.
“A situation in which foreign broadcast stations arrogate to themselves the power to tell our own story gives room for distortion of facts”.
The Minister further explained that had it been the local broadcast media lived up to their expectation, CNN would have relied on them for news about End SARS in particular and other happenings in Nigeria.
“A situation in which the local media will rely on and quote a foreign broadcast media, for an event that happened in Nigeria, is an anomaly. It has to stop,” he said
