By Ruth Omosayin
New Minister of Information and National Orientation, Muhammad Idris, has said the ministry will uphold honesty instead of resorting to falsehoods in defense of the government.
Upon assuming office following his inauguration in Abuja yesterday, the minister affirmed a commitment to transparency and truthfulness in disseminating information.
He said the government is prepared to take responsibility for any errors or mistakes, and will endeavor to make necessary corrections.
Idris said national orientation would be a core aspect of the government, hence “in a matter of days we would roll out our plans to Nigerians.”
He called on Nigerians to shun fake news and always clarify issues before taking it out to the public, noting that the ministry would be accountable and open to Nigerians.
