Fake News Threatens National Stability, ICPC Chairman tells Media

The Chairman, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Professor Bolaji Owasanoye, SAN, OFR, has called on the media to be wary of fake news and biased reporting because according to him, “fake news and biased reporting threatens all of us. It threatens the stability of the state and it threatens professional competencies and our livelihoods.”

Professor Owasanoye gave the advice on Monday at the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja while declaring open a two-day workshop for reporters covering the activities of ICPC.

The Chairman stated that the workshop would offer an opportunity for the Commission and the media to close ranks about deciding how to “continue to communicate professionally bearing the risk of reporting fake news in mind.”
