Sanctions Publishers of Fake News For Better Democratic Process, Mai Jama
MPD Members
The Movement for the Protection of Democracy (MPD) has advised media organisations to always check and balanced their stories before circulation so as to ensure good governance in Nigeria.

Speaking to our correspondent, Jabiru Hassan, in Kano, the Chairman of the association, Alhaji Umar Mai Jama'a said that some media organisations are in the habit of giving stories without verifying their source just to be the first to break it which is against the journalism ethics.

He added that "In some cases, many media organisations were even taken to court for publishing a story which is not verified and sometimes such news often created embarrassment to those mentioned in the news which is a great set back, and I am appealing to news editors to always have an interaction with their correspondents whenever a news was filed to ensure that all is well with the story".

Alhaji Umar Mai Jama'a called on the authorities concerned to prosecute media organisations that violated the check and balance tradition and those who publish fake news especially Online platforms to serve as lessons to those who always framed news without verification.

He commended the Nigerian journalists who always discharges their duties effectively especially at present when the country is on the Democratic dispensation, and re-assures that MPD would continue to promote peace and unity in Nigeria through public enlightenment on every issue.
