Create Appropriate Contents to Reflect Shared Interest, Bishop Onuoha to Media Practitioners

Communicating falsehood, unverified reports will make the society unsafe for everyone, Bishop Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha has told Media Practitioners in the country.

He contended that the society is heading towards self destruction because of the level of false and unverified reports that circulate the media space.

The President Vision Africa International, Bishop Dr. Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha, who revealed this while presenting his speech on Tuesday at the 11th Edition of the 2024 Media Institute Training holding at Vision Africa premises, emphasized that as media practitioners, journalists must ensure that their stories are properly glenned in order not to cause turmoil in the society.

The NRB Media Award Winner 2016, said every communicator has the opportunity to build or destroy the society, adding that the inter- connectedness that exist among people further makes the sender and the receiver in the same communication situation where distance is no longer a barrier.

He charged media practitioners in Nigeria not to create an unsafe society through their publications, reports or what they say behind the microphone, insisting that in their hands lie the power to build bridges as well as cause unnecessary panic in the camps of recipients of these media messages.

The former Special Assistant on Privatization, to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, enjoined media practitioners to always ask themselves pertinent questions relating to: “what am about to write, publish or say, is it verified information and how will it build human society”?

Bishop Onuoha reiterated that to salvage Nigeria and the society in general from self destruction, there has to be re-orientation of the human mind which will enhance behavioural change and transformation of the human mind.

The Methodist Bishop who lamented over the situation in many African countries like Nigeria where there are no proper planning for the next generation, said it is disheartening that about 20 million people in Nigeria are Out-of-School while calling on media practitioners to create authentic media content that will reflect shared humanity as well as promote peace in their content.

The two-day media training which started today, will end Wednesday, July 3rd, 2024.
