The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF and Chairman, Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha has noted with pleasure the contributions of the Nigerian Media in the fight against the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic as the nation marks the 2021 World Press Freedom Day.

He said that Journalists made sacrifices in filing reports day and night, particularly, at the onset of the pandemic in which press briefings were held by the then Presidential Task Force on daily basis.

Mustapha noted that their contributions led to the dissemination of accurate information to the citizenry through jingles, advertorials and various educational programmes on their platforms.

The SGF assured media practitioners of the continued support of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 while urging practitioners to use their role as purveyors of news to build a strong and united country by adhering to the ethics of the profession through truthful and accurate reports.
