The Federal Government, on Tuesday, lamented that media houses in the country are quick to reports bandit attacks than they do when the government and security forces record successes.
According to the Minister, some successes have been recorded by security forces and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government in tackling insecurity in the country.
”Unfortunately, these positive efforts have not received the kind of media attention given to banditry,” he said.
Lai Mohammed, therefore, urged for “positive coverage of the successes” by media houses in the country, noting that it would encourage the affected states, security agencies and the federal government.
While hailing the state governor for the efforts so far in tackling banditry in Katsina, the Information Minister expressed confidence that insecurity will soon be forgotten.
