President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the media to be sensitive to the prevailing situation in the country and avoid applying its freedom to highlighting contents that can worsen its fragile mood.

President Buhari spoke yesterday in his goodwill message to mark this year’s World Press Freedom Day, admonishing that while it continues to carry out its traditional duties, the media must not give room to comments and feelings that are intended to hurt the nation’s unity.

According to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President noted that freedom of the press is an irreducible minimum in a democracy that would flourish, adding that freedom must, however, be used responsibly.

In commemoration of the day, which is observed globally every May 3, President Buhari recommitted to freedom of the press and urged media professionals to wield freedom responsibly and without licentiousness.
