Mr President, Nigerian Media Know When To Use ‘Declining Insecurity’

President Muhammadu Buhari stirred the hornet’s nest on Monday when he used his Eid-el-Maulud message to enjoin “the media to address the tone, content, and standards of reporting into security and safety measures. Time has come to revise the prefixes ‘rising insecurity’ with ‘declining insecurity’.” This came on the heels of a report by the Wall Street Journal that the Nigerian government paid the sum of N20 million to a bandit leader to secure a 12.7 caliber anti-aircraft gun in exchange for the payment.

WSJ alleged that the Air Force struck the deal amid plans by the President to visit his home state of Katsina, which has been ravaged by the activities of bandits in the Northwest. In line with their propensity for self-censorship, respectable Nigerian media platforms watered down the story, avoided it, or even anchored on the Nigerian Air Force denial of the foreign newspaper’s weighty allegation.
