    President Buhari alleged Media Organisations of Prejudices in Conflict Reporting

    President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday alleged media organisations of prejudices in reporting conflicts in the country,

    He made the allegation during an interactive meeting with the Nigerian community in China yesterday.

    He said while security agencies were doing their best to reduce clashes, the Nigerian media should complement the efforts through objective and informed reportage, The Guardian reports.

    "To my disappointment, the members of the press in Nigeria do not make enough efforts to study the historical antecedents of issues that are creating national problems for us," the president said.

    He therefore appealed to the media to understand the cultural and historical implications of some of the misunderstanding especially between herders and farmers.

    Buhari, currently in Beijing for the seventh Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, explained that as a result of the effects of climate change, a farm that used to belong to five people now belongs to 50 and that the weather condition, particularly the rainy season, has become unpredictable.
